Highway Maintenance Driver Reckless!!!!

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 09:25, Mon 4 September 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4955642.

Reg: WM70 UZL Car: White Highway Maintenance Van Road: Lower Earley Way N and Rushey Way Time: 08:12 Date: 04/09/2023

Firstly you need to add a section on your website for National Highway's reckless drivers!

The road on Lower Earley N veers from a double road into a single road. This incompitent van driver overtook me almost hitting my vehicle as soon as it was a single lane. I was ahead and he should have waited like a normal person but no he had to be in front.

He then turned onto Rushey Way and at the roundabout (Rushey Way/Kilnsea Drive), sped through roundabout and did not give right of way to the car turning right into Kilnsea Drive. This is a school zone to add to this!!! Not going 20mph.

Disgusting and wreckless driving which needs to be reported. Your drivers are more dangerous that the current state of the roads.
