Re: Just for fun

One for Sunday guys.

Over 60 years driving and only found out yesterday, but why is there a gap on the roundabout sign.... and why did nobody tell me? 🙂

Re: Just for fun

It's to tell you and others that you must go round it clockwise, as there is no apparent route counter-clockwise. Wink

Re: Just for fun

Yep that's what it is for, to show you how to go (clockwise).

Likewise the brackets in the road numbers - it is not directly that road, but a link to that road.

Re: Just for fun

More subliminal than that, more about not going anti-clockwise. 

As said, I've only just found out as previously I'd never really noticed it.

Yeh, daft isn't it.

Amazing what you learn late in life. The other day it dawned on me that the bedside Teasmade was a play on the words 'teas made'.

I'm left wondering just what else has passed me by. 

Non-binary Andy Pandy? 🤔

As for driving, as kids we used to drive our Dad's old banger once our feet could reach those pedals. Not on the main road mind you, but close enough. Where we live now it's not uncommon to see farmers children driving tractors or those quads... and not always off road either.

Weird signage there, @RobPN - I'll read the links later to try and make sense of them.😀
