Carrington near Manchester. The hedges are not cut back sufficiently. It is the vulnerable road users that are particularly hard done by but even drivers will be shocked at the views of hidden signs.

1 View looking E: There are important warning order and direction signs hidden in these bushes. Even this large sign is obscured and slowly disappearing through poor maintenance.

2 View looking E: 40 mph sign is hidden. An easy excuse for drivers to speed and get away with it even when they are caught.

3 There's a warning sign for the traffic lights here. It's completely hidden.

4 Another view of the sharp bushes overhanging the road. They force cyclists far out into the road. Those that don't risk injury of scratches and eye damage – the shock may result in cyclist swerving into path of following vehicle. Nevertheless drivers have no patience for cyclists that take a safer path – some professional drivers of heavy vehicles are very bad some are very good though.
