    Once again another serious incident on this road again today. Another fatality yesterday.

    Is it not the drivers on the road, & not the roads fault ? maybe the same can be said of the post house roundabout, seems to be more and more accidents everywhere.

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

    MP1953 – a redesign of the road 10 years ago? It’s been used as a public highway since Roman Times – so it’s got around 2,000 years of designated experience with traffic of sorts. Tells you everything you need to know about the mentality of modern drivers and not the road itself.

    Bloody Romans! Great at the time but no forward thinking

    Maybe something could be done similar to the A525 and A5104 roads around Llandegla and Bryneglwys. Efforts have been made to force drivers to drive more slowly. Those roads now have reduced speed limits, average speed cameras, and big sobering road signs that say things like “5 fatalities in 2 years” or “40 serious accidents in 5 years” (I don’t remember the specific numbers quoted). I don’t know whether it’s helped – it may be a few years before a proper comparison can be made of number of accidents before and after the changes were made. I’m quite surprised at how much effort has been put into trying to make those roads safer. Maybe this is done on lots of roads now, though these are the only ones I’ve seen it on.

    A lot of drivers don’t look at road signs and look where they are going, that is why they have accidents.

    Thanks just realised what I had done, not looking what I was doing.
