temporary traffic lights - flatfour
On Sunday I was following a Ford Maverick, who indicated left, pulled over and stopped, I indicated to overtake, got halfway alongside to notice a red temporary traffic light, a BMW was on my tail, the guy in the Maverick jesticulated.

Where were the traffic light signs?

Why did the guy in the Maverick indicate left when he stopped for the light?

Why did the guy behind in the BMW toot his horn when I stopped because the light was red.

Then a driver came through the lights from the other direction who also jesticulated.

And why do they always place these lights on a sharp blind bend, so you sit and wait for someone to spin around the corner into the back of your car?

Did anyone call the local highway authority? There are strict guidelines on the signage for road works these days, in fact there are specialist companies to set them up as you now have to be qualified to do so and I'm sure the local authority would be interested if the standards aren't being adhered to.

Who knows? He bought a Maverick for heavens sake! :-)

Because he has a BMW and you had stopped on his road. :-)

flatfour, I'm beginning to think you might be the common denominator here!

Ah, now you're just getting paranoid...


I'll put my tin hat on now, but in my defence only the first comment is serious, honest!!
