Inadequate identification of no through road.

Reported via mobile in the Road Signage category anonymously at 18:45, Mon 10 January 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

I have previously reported, many years ago, the issue with drivers unfamiliar with area using Stanley Avenue as a short cut to avoid oncoming traffic on Sefton Park Road. Cul de sac sign were installed around that time however it remains unclear to many drivers that Stanley Avenue is not a through Road. As a result many drivers who enter the Avenue in error and find that they are unable to reverse up hill for a considerable distance panic and try to do three (often many more) point turns between parked cars, often up onto the pavement and damaging residents cars and there own in the process. One incident caused £3500 damage to my own car and I've had to help two elderly drivers turn there cars around again this evening. A common occurance most days. Please would BCC consider more appropriate signage and/or Road markings to make it clear that Stanley Avenue is not a through road. The unclear cul de sac signs are not sufficient.
