A27 = Accidents waiting to happen

Whether it is driver error or just the road it is always the same areas on the A27 where the incidents occur, it's about time the road was made safer.

Ashcombe roundabout has traffic lights, Southerham roundabout does not. There are keep clear signs on the road but drivers largely ignore them.
