CONES ARE TAKING OVER — LIKE MINI DALEKS!
I had to stop the taxi driver just so that I could take this picture. Goodness knows what she must have thought! It is no wonder people get lost and have accidents. This is information overload, and very distracting indeed. What do you think? Click on the picture to enlarge!
I always feel that cones are a bit of a cheat when there is no actual evidence of any work being carried out. I would also prefer that signs be placed down the road BEFORE the options run out, to give drivers the opportunity of taking alternative routes. We just turned a corner and came across all this, and we couldn’t even begin to guess what was going on — resurfacing? painting markings? digging a gas main? Is there a reason for concern, are we in danger? How long will things be like this? Will we ever know?
This simply becomes one of those things we have somehow come to accept as acceptable. Things are getting worse.
