The Greyhound roundabout needs attention.

Nothing wrong with either, itís the occasional driver that need to pay attention. Both roundabouts have been there many years. Cars etc have improved with there road handling over the years. Itís the driver who is at fault. 
The roundabout is there for two reasons (A) a junction (B) to slow you down. If you canít slow down and you go over it. Itís done itís job.

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

The whole section of road needs attention including both roundabouts - too many crashes, too much speeding and certainly one terrible fatality no matter where it is is one too many. I am very glad I hadn't taken my young kids over to Chalfont Park when a speeding car went straight thru the railings in the pedestrian section on the roundabout as anybody stood there would have been totally wiped out.
Everyone has the right to their own opinion quite rightly, this happens to be mine. Cheers

As I say......just a thought.....
On the last Police Speed Trap which took place on a weekday lunchtime, within an hour they had clocked 8+ vehicles travelling between 90mph and 97mph - I presume NOT in a clapped out stolen old VW Golf.

AT least the person who used to do upto 150mph down there (as verified by terrified passengers) is off the streets and on remand facing a 12-15 stretch for other offences.
