    Car crash in Oxfordshire

    A car crash in Oxfordshire can happen anywhere

    In the town of Bicester in Oxfordshire there has been concern about a roundabout that has been the scene of an increasing number of car accidents. The latest accident occurred earlier in March when a man and woman crashed into the middle of the roundabout that is near the junction of Vendee Drive and had to be taken to hospital. Currently, the Bicester Council is planning to place larger speed limit signs and yellow chevron signs to try to slow the speed of the traffic that goes through the roundabout.

    However, some have criticised the plans by suggesting that drivers will ignore the signs as they already do. Both the Oxfordshire County Council member, Les Sibley and Bicester town councillor, Nick Cotter have stated that the best strategy to slow down vehicles is to place “rumble strips” on the road approaching the roundabout. Rumble strips are a road safety device that are installed on roads that cause a vibration and loud rumbling when they are driven over and this alerts drivers to potential dangers they may be encountering such as drifting off into the lane on your side without realising it. They also go by many other names such as audible lines, growlers and sleeper lines. Rumble strips can either be placed in the same direction as the traffic on the edge of lanes or across the direction of the traffic to alert drivers that they need to stop soon or that there is a dangerous spot in the road coming up.

    Rumble strips are a common road safety device because they are not expensive and have proven to reduce the number of accidents caused by inattentive drivers. However, the effectiveness of rumble strips has been debated and it has been proven that rumble strips placed in the direction of traffic require other road features to be effective including a wide road shoulder for drivers to recover on. Critics of rumble strips have argued that they create unwanted noise at night and are a danger to cyclists and horses.
