Watch ‘near miss’ on Hull Kingswood roundabout which driver blames…

A lack of clear road markings has led to a Hull driver claiming they have faced a number of near misses at a Kingswood roundabout, with one captured on video. The driver, who asked not to be named, said the near miss on Kingswood's Raich Carter Way-Thomas Clarkson Way roundabout on Wednesday evening (December 6) was the latest of four. They added people cutting in front of other cars on the roundabout could result in a serious accident unless action is taken. It comes after Hull City Council said they inspected the roundabout last month and deemed it as not requiring any works, including repainting road markings. A council spokesperson said another inspection is set to take place in the spring after the latest one on Monday, November 13.

The road user said: “The road markings are really not good, someone's going to be killed or seriously injured on one of Hull's most used roads.” Now, another road user has come forward saying they have experienced near misses first hand and they have captured it on their dashcam. They said: “I have had four near misses at this roundabout due to no clear markings of the lanes and people just cut over into my lane. Can't see the survey?

Also, the lines on the road are very faint. “There will be a serious accident here soon. Then what will be the excuse from the council?” It comes as Hull Live has launched a survey asking which road markings people think are most in need of repainting and maintenance. The council is ultimately responsible for maintaining markings and keeping them freshly painted and they regularly work on them and other features of the road network. New markings can be painted using a Traffic Regulation Order. People can also request that the council paints new markings or puts up new new signs and signals to help with traffic in an area by visiting the council's website.
