Back to DRLs: they also increase the CO2 and decrease the MPG - only slightly, I'll admit, but nonetheless...
Get an electric car then. Pass on the CO2 to the electricity generators and forget the MPG.Back to DRLs: they also increase the CO2 and decrease the MPG - only slightly, I'll admit, but nonetheless...
I was out walking this morning and saw a few cars which may have had DRLs front and rear. Obviously, I've no idea whether these were just (in)considerate drivers who had turned their sidelights on, or whether they really were front and rear DRLs. The cars that might have had rear DRLs were BMW and Toyota. Anyone know if these manufacturers produce vehicles with this option.I was out on the motorway in bad weather yesterday, and most cars had lights on except a few - who were almost invisible at a medium distance. DRLs don't make up for that, because they only show at the front.
That is the problem. Sign is fine.The number of idiots
I don't think so. The road is not closed at that sign, so it's warning those who can think that it is a temporary no through road.From your description I think the sign should say ROAD CLOSED - ACCESS ONLY
Oh yes, and sometimes it's a side road and not the main thoroughfare. What's worse, the info doesn't often make it onto the satnav.Our local council have a nasty habit of putting 'road ahead closed' signs with no indication of where (how far away) the closure occurs.
Yes, that really Ts me off. It's OK for daily commuters as you can grab a line each day, but if you are a less regular visitor you won't get enough passes in time.The yellow signs advertising advance notice of closures are no good - by the time you're close enough to read the small print you're past the sign.
There is a hell of a lot of roadworks in the area - so my guess from one of the other signs is an arrow indicating a side road closed.I'm wondering what's under the blacked-out part!
If you zoom in on the right hand picture, you might just see a car in line with the top of the sign. It has just done a U-turn at the Road Closed sign.From your description I think the sign should say ROAD CLOSED - ACCESS ONLY rather than ROAD AHEAD CLOSED which is usually used to give advance notice of a ROAD CLOSED sign.
All of the signs in the nearby roadworks (done on behalf of Notts County Council by Via and then subcontracted) are like that. Hence the "blacked-out" part which is an arrow on another sign about 10m from the road (to the left) that is closed. I didn't look to see if there was an advanced warning at the start of the road.Our local council have a nasty habit of putting 'road ahead closed' signs with no indication of where (how far away) the closure occurs.
