You could well be asked to splay the entrance but more importantly ensure you can achieve and maintain adequate vision lines.
Some of these issues will vary from County to County and from engineer to engineer. As with a lot of these queries a quick call to the planning office and/or the local roads engineer should get you sorted as indeed will your architect.
