Advertising sign blocking view on junction

There is a large advertising sign at the exit of Ranksborough Drive. It obscures vision of traffic coming in both directions depending upon which side you try to exit the road. I have spoken to an employee of the company who said that after complaints the sign was moved. The blue section of the sign was lowered by a couple of inches - apparently we now have to peek through the gap to see the speeding traffic. It is an accident waiting to happen.

Sadly the employee of the company thinks I’m just unlucky with the height of my car making it difficult to peep through the gap and that’s my problem. The fast traffic on the road is also not their problem. The employee said they would get back to me within a week, that was 10 days ago.
