Yellow lines are normally used to stop motorists parking on the road - but now they have been painted on a pavement in a town centre to show pedestrians where to walk.
Two lines stretch for 100m (328ft) down a high street. Other yellow lines have been painted around trees, a post box and cash points. The path has caused confusion for residents in Ripple Road, Barking, east London, who cannot see the point of it.
‘We have all managed until now to walk along the path without tripping over things in the way, so why do we suddenly need guidelines?’ said 49-year-old Martin Harris. ‘It’s completely over the top and another sign of health and safety gone mad.’
My comment: Health and Safety gone mad at the taxpayer's expense. They must have money to burn so one can only conclude that no services will be cut in Barking and Dagenham.
