There’s a word … ‘implications’.

This new prohibition of driving sign was recently spotted at one end of a BOAT/unclassified road in Northumberland. Fair enough, you say? Yes, well … these traffic signs can be used only where these is an underpinning traffic order and – you guessed it – there isn’t one here.

Northumberland County Council said, “We have arranged for these signs to be removed as there is no associated traffic regulation order. We are investigating to find out why these signs were put up and will make sure that the relevant people are reminded of the implications.

So, with 270 unlawful ‘Cyclists Dismount’ signs put up and then removed, that makes 272 in 2017, and counting.
