An accident waiting to happen?

going UP West Bank was observed.

16.6.16 The magical moving roadsigns

DCC Highways stated at a site meeting on 7.10.15 that all possible locations for this sign had been explored and the original position was the only one viable.
Following lobbying (and against the majority wish) DCC Highways have moved the sign (and the street sign which has been
 in position for 30+ years) to the left. Apparently "because the wall is listed".
(The whole property is listed to the curtiledge anyway!)

SPOT THE HGV SIGN!

It is not illegal to drive a bus up this road, but it is (to say the least for a local company) foolhardy,
especially when they know there is a viable alternative route.

This fool was from Slovakia. Jammed between wall and car. He had no English. Held up legal traffic for 30+ minutes. Eventually went down the Main Street.
