Often find drivers dangerously crossing first lane to second lane without checking for other vehicles at j11a the a417 heading east, i believe this is due to confusing signage for M5 north and south junctions. Signage is misleading..

Change sign to show left lane is a slip road going to M5 South + (bristol and Gloucester business park.). Second / third lane will take you to a junction for M5 North (midlands). This should make it clear that the inside lane is going a separate direction and stop people dangerously crossing at the last second to second lane as they believe they can stay in first lane for M5 north (as per sign) when they cant!.
