Brighouse worker criticises signage

29th May 2012 | Warning Signs

A Brighouse employee has criticised Calderdale Council for putting up warning signs that are wrongly placed.

Local resident Terry Armitage told the Brighouse Echo that signage has been installed in order to fine "unwitting motorists", after being fined for parking outside Armitage Sykes solicitors, which is a keep clear section.

"We have three perfectly good parking spaces, no yellow lines, no 'no parking' signs, a clearway sign not on a clearway, and a council quite happy to entrap unsuspecting motorists, presumably for the money," Mr Armitage told the news provider.

He argued that what the council is doing equates to nothing more than entrapment, describing the signage as "redundant".

Earlier this month, reported that locals in Wimbledon have accused their council of fining motorists for committing bus lane breaches that they were not aware of.

One resident told the website that people have been fined for driving in a Hartfield Road bus lane which they did not realise was present.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801373604-ADNFCR
