    Just heard that the A39 from Roundswell (Barnstaple) to the Torridge Bridge (Bideford) is closed due to a fatal accident.
    Diversions are in place through Bickington etc.

    Can I please request that people do not post about road closures otherwise the forum would be flooded with them.

    I appreciate your only trying to help VA but the people that need this advice are more than likely in their cars.

    I do not recognise your authority.

    The road at the end of my road has a few leaves on it, and a traffic cone, possibly left by students, is in the middle of the mini roundabout.

    Please add your local traffic info. below.

    The road I can see from window is slightly wet due to some kind of moisture falling from the sky. I advise people do not drive along it.

    Some bugger has covered my road in what can only be described as 'tarmac', a substance which is specifcally designed as some sort of 'road surface'. I would make sure you plan your journeys accordingly.

    Some tool has put something called a traffic, 'light' ,on the main road. It just randomnly changes colours, its really quite confusing to most drivers and i recommend avoidng its alluring colour scheme at all costs.

    I got bored when it turned red (my least favourite colour lol!) and drove off.

    Someone is parked on double-yellow lines on the B5151 and this is causing tailbacks of up to 2 cars in each direction.

    There is a fag-end in the gutter outside my house. Possibly left by me.

    I can confirm that the close in which I live does not currently have any traffic at all on it.

    Apart from the inconsiderate &$%@ over the road who keeps parking on the street instead of his driveway making it awkward for me and Vix to get in and out of our drive.

    Just had a call in from a friend who is monitoring the situation continuously; apparently the driver has returned to the vehicle and switched on the hazard warning lights. As a direct result of this traffic is now flowing freely.

    Alright for you, those potholes aren't going anywhere - could cause considerable amount of motorists swerving upto a foot to the left for the foreseeable future :(

    I live nowhere near a road. Thus, because I cannot see any traffic, everything is fine!
