Here's an urban scene with a traffic table at a junction, and a 20 mph zone leading off to the right. And a great sky!

These markings, and some similar ones on the other side, are all that is left of the chicane that was installed on the B5125 in Northop Hall. There are humps now, which are far less disruptive.

Speed hump-induced rutting

This is the sort of damage that speed humps cause to the existing road surface. The wheels of vehicles accelerating uphill away from the hump churn up the road surface. (Name and shame Eastleigh Borough Council and Hampshire County Council).

New Malden High Street - B283

Note how the bus stop area extends from one island to the next - it is (just) possible to get round a bus if it stops in the middle of the red area, but few datre to do so because it's difficult to see whether there is enough room at the far end.

The chicane seen from the other side - at least it's NSL once you're out of the 20 limit.

From the other side, the sign is correct, but- again the left lane is blocked- normally at a block type calming scheme, the priority traffic can go straigh through, and does not need to change lanes. Here though, you need to change lanes, but then you end up in the correct lane.- see the previous view.

Studlands Rise, Royston - 1 - South Bound

Wrong sign. Upside down. Look at the arrows. Now, if you are used to a blue rectangluar sign at this type of junction meaning, you have priority, then you could make a costly mistake. This should be a round sign with red border. Note the road though, looks like a normal calming scheme, the lane you are in is blocked. However look at the the view from the other side.... (next)

The worst road surface in Britain - Coppermine - 18837.jpg
The worst road surface in Britain?

Up on Fort Pitt Hill in Rochester is a horrendous road surface. It looks like it was once cobbled, but the cobbles have subsided and vanished, and potholes and ravines appeared. The road appears worse in the flesh, and most cars ground out negotiating the road, especially the deep ravine pictured here. Some people actually drive the road for a challenge! If you can drive this road without damaging your car you are a bloody good driver!

The Vauxhall Corsa in the photo is not pulling out of a parking space, it is negotiating a deep ravine running across the road!

One of two parallel roads forming the basis of the pattern of housing on this estate, the other being Masters Drive. Golf enthusiasts will not be surprised to learn that the individual closes off these roads are named after courses, e.g. Sunningdale Close.
