- When does a pole become sensory overload with number of signs?
- Who decides which is maximum fine?
- That is some lead if all dogs are to be kept on it.
- Why are the levels of fines such odd numbers? €1,269.74 does not even become a round figure when converted to punts.
- Will the signs be replaced or amended when Town Council merges into County Council?
- Would I take as much notice of signs if I had not started this blog?
I thought that some humour may be appropriate on this Monday.
