I wonder if you could sue if you complied with the arrow and damaged you'r Vehicle. :idea:
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Beer in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up,  totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a  ride!!"

  • THE lowest common denominator
"Idiotic" would be too kind a definition.

Google Street View has the arrows on the bollards facing in the correct direction.

They have obviously replaced this one with a standard 'keep left bollard'.  Whoever erected it should be sacked.

Looking at the StreetView images, it appears to be some sort of half hearted attempt at a cycle path.

It is a road constriction with cycle lane 'bypass' but of course wrong makings even without the bollard.

  • Veni, Vidi, $chunti. I came, I saw, I assisted.
That's a standard set up for no entry for vehicles above 11' 3."


Appealing to the council is like playing chess with a pigeon. You might be a chess grand master but the pigeon will always knock all the pieces over, shit on the board and then strut around triumphantly.

Very quickly comprehensible sign

The first sign is what is seen by approaching traffic, before turning left into the restricted road.

The second sign is what is seen once the turn has been commenced.

Signs should convey their intended message quickly and accurately.
