'Home-made warning signs' installed over pothole danger

It seems as though someone living close to a country road in East Yorkshire has become so concerned about the dangers potholes peppered along the route pose to drivers they have taken evasive action - by making their own warning signs to alert them.

About ten warning signs, which are bright orange and read: "This road is dangerous! Please fill the holes", have appeared on the B1249 Driffield to Wansford road, reports.

Councillor Paul Rounding told the newspaper that while the signs' appearance was a "mystery", "whoever it was has done a good job".

"There are some really bad potholes on the B1249 and motorists and other road users need to be warned about their existence," he said.

The council has plans in place to repair the potholes, which are thought to have been created by extreme winter weather, as soon as possible.

"I applaud the mystery sign writer because the notices alert road users to the exact location of potholes," Mr Rounding added.

Recently, it was reported that some drivers were taking rather different action with regard to warning signs – by moving them from a temporarily-closed road in Kent where the repair of burst water mains was taking place.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800359290-ADNFCR
