Deadly roads

Late last year a car crash almost cost the life of my sister's (then) unborn baby. The damage might not look the most dramatic you've ever seen but the car was scap metal and my sister taken into hospital. My mum and another of my sisters were left badly shaken up but otherwise safe.

The cause of this crash?

The junction of Tenterden Way and Millmead Road. It is frankly one of the worst palces to try to manage a right hand turn from as by the time you can see on coming traffic to your right you are fully committed to the turn.

I am currently attempting to get the corner made safe before someone is killed.

What happened to my mum's car

Yes the wheel is bent at a funny angle. No the car could not be driven.

This wheel is broken
