'Death traps must be closed' at crossover near Grantham




I regularly witness horrific potential accidents at the crossover at Great Ponton.

My passenger captured this on camera (below), a white van pulling in off the outside land to do a U-turn. There is no feeder lane and the traffic behind must swing into the inside lane to miss a potentially fatal collision. They were completely unaware of the results of this move.

All the vans that were doing an upgrade to the petrol station were doing this daily.

If the police were to spend half an hour at 7.30am they would catch a handful of culprits.

It staggers me, the selfishness of these drivers, to save five minutes extra and not use the Colsterworth junction.

I plead to the council to just close all these death traps.
