No entry sign required

A large volume of cars, when they are driving down White Hill, to turn right into Broadlands Avenue, enter the road via the wrong turning.
These cars enter the road via the outgoing part of the road and I have encountered cars turning into here on several occasions and I have had to steer around them, which I wouldn't have had to do if they had entered the road from the correct road entrance.
On several occasions, I have had to rush across this part of Broadlands Avenue with young children, because a vehicle has turned into the road via the wrong entrance which is obviously a big safety risk to pedestrians such as myself.
The outgoing turning of Broadlands Avenue at the junction with White Hill needs a 'No Entry' sign to warn drivers coming down White Hill that they cannot use this part of the road to enter Broadlands Avenue. I believe that drivers do this because they are either too lazy or too incompetent to negotiate the proper turning into Broadlands Avenue. I am sure that other residents, elderly, with babies etc would appreciate your authoritative stance on this local issue.
I take issue with this person. They obviously don’t drive or they would realise the problem some vehicles have. I drive a large four wheel drive and it doesn’t have enough steering lock to negotiate the junction from what they perceive as the right side. I f I tried I would have to shunt, leaving myself in the oncoming traffic which at times is very fast. The issue could be resolved by making the junction a normal T junction instead.
