Overgrown trees/bushes

I live at Mill Court, Weavers Mill Close BS5 8FF. Every day I drive my son to nursery, Mama Bears on Crews Hole Road. I would like to bring your attention to an issue.

Overgrown trees/bushes that run alongside the round are wild and stick out on to the already very busy and narrow road. After each heavy rain or strong wind, there will be thick brunches poking out on the road. Because the road is extremely busy in the rush hours, often cars are forced to move to the side (where the bushes are) to let the upcoming traffic (occasionally big trucks or lorries), which then results in scratched cars. Our two cars have marks on the side of the car, which is very frustrating (and expensive). The sides of the road look very messy and contribute to cars damages. I would appreciate if you could inspect the part of the Crews Hole Road. Trimming of the greens on both sides of the Crews Hole Road would be appreciated by many drivers. Those branches can really leave marks on the car, which is expensive! Because many drivers are not careful, drive faster than 20mph or have wide cars, occasionally it is unavoidable to move too close to the side of the road.
