That is the warning from a Gloucestershire woman left badly injured after a crash at an accident blackspot.

There have been six crashes in six months on the A417 outside Hartpury College, there are fears the next one could be fatal.

Listen to Megan's story

She had to be cut free from her car last September, Megan had to have pins in her knee, her leg in traction to help her shattered pelvis and a further seven pins and two plates to hold her 25 fractures together.

She spent two months in a wheelchair and had to have weeks of intensive rehabilitation to learn to walk again. She was in Road safety poster constant pain, suffered from depression and was off work for nearly six months.

Megan is now working with the Gloucestershire Road Safety Partnership to help other people by sharing her story.
 
Posters are going up in the area to warn people about the ‘blind spot’ on the junction and to appeal to motorists to take their time, stop and look to the right properly before manoeuvring.
