    Wasn’t the major issue of this accident that she was driving the wrong way up the southbound carriageway?

    There are several incidents a year when drivers do this at the Burpham junction. When is SCC going to be a bit more imaginative than saying the signage meets standards? The current oversignage and roadmarkings just encourage mistakes, sober or not.

    Yes, I believe that this was the incident where the police had to ram her car to stop her when she was driving the wrong way up the A3.

    I believe from the newspapers, she was arrested for drunk or drug driving at the time.

    As for the signage at the Burpham junction roundabout off the A3, I can’t see anything wrong with it at all. There are 4 huge No Entry signs and I think it’s written on the road too, The slip road off the A3 is canted off at an angle that would actually make it quite hard to turn into it from the roundabout.

    As far as I can see, as a driver and motorcyclist for some 35 or so years, you’d need to be a complete idiot or as drunk as a skunk to miss the fact that you’re not supposed to drive that way!

    It’s all very well for people to say that Surrey County Council need to do more to stop people driving onto the slip road the wrong way at this junction, but I can’t see as there’s much more they can do and you just can’t plan for idiots that shouldn’t be driving in the first place.
