Concrete bollard removed from car collision

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect category by Ed Gunner at 08:02, Tuesday 5 April 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Concrete bollard removed from outside my house 9 Kingsweston Avenue following well documented drunk driving car collision on Saturday 2nd April. There have also been 2 other concrete bollards removed from previous car collisions opposite, outside 10 Kingsweston Avenue. This bollard took the brunt of the cars impact, slowing it down enough to not cause a fatal crash into the car it hit 20 meters down the road. It's on a school crossing and needs all 3 bollards replacing and severe traffic calming measures. It is just a matter of time before there are child fatalities here, this particular car was travelling at 80mph on Saturday and if it wasn't for that bollard, the passengers of the vehicle hit, including a baby, would have been killed, along with the driver speeding. If any of my family were standing outside the house at this point we also would have been killled. As well as replacement bollards, traffic calming measures desperately need to be put in place to force drivers to drive below 30. It is a 20 mph limit further down Kingsweston Avenue, but drivers treat this part as a drag strip as it's straight with no traffic calming, hence the near fatal crash on Saturday. Sleeping policemen or a forced single lane is the only way to force drivers to slow down here, something. Anything. It's a school crossing, if measures are not put in place then it is a matter of time before children are killed, if it wasn't for that bollard there would have been multiple fatalities including a baby.
