Visibility dangerous joining main road

Reported via desktop in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 14:06, Mon 2 August 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The tree's & hedge is totally overgrown, it has almost completely taken away the pavement. More importantly there is nearly no visibility now to exit Long Drive if turning right onto Dropmore Road. Whilst it should be a 30mph this, in reality is not the case & drivers fly round this corner. I have now nudged out on 3 separate occasions only to avoid speeding cars when I have my young son in the car. a slight trim simply will not be enough to make it safe, it needs to go back & the pavement be available again.
