So this is the Southbound section of the A1 Elkersley, starting just before Jockey lane and going as far as London Road. Both North & Southbound. There were about 4 Fixed speed cameras. Gatsometers... But I have not seen the Southbound ones. I think they were taken out? although they still feature in this Google maps record.
The main thing about these signs is that "They are a load of bullshit". BUT you apparently cannot challenge a speed limit in law. And any incorrect sign arguments (Many there are..) in my opinion is is a complete distration from the fact that whomever is setting these speed limits is where the attention should be.. by FRAUD by abuse of position & perverting the course of justice. Setting Illegal speed limits inconsistent, that Cause & permit drivers to contravene (ILLEGAL) speed limits. and issue legal abuse to innocent mislead drivers.
The terimal signs should be ONE SET. A pair of 50mph signs of the correct size... and Then Repeater sign at measured intervals, which SHOULD BE EITHER ... *ONE SIGN* at each interval on ONE side of the road only. OR *ONE* sign on alternating sides ONE at each interval.
Not repeated sets of TERMINAL SIGNS, which is incorrect.
Also there are TWO set of terminal signs that CLAIM the speed limit starts LATER ON! THEY ARE TERMINAL SIGNS WHEN PAIRED. and the NOTICES GIVES PERMIT TO CONTRAVENE THE TRAFFIC REGULATION ORDER. (as crooked as it is). This happens TWICE..
Remember that a pair of terminal signs give SIGNAL that the road IN FRONT of them is NOT the speed they are CHANGING the limit to.... THUS REPEATED TERMINAL SIGNS ARE DANGEROUS AND SEND INCORRECT MESSAGES TO DRIVERS.
These first SETS probably tricking a driver to carry on... Ignore them & hope they ignore the others as well and trigger the speed cameras.
Fishing for HGV at 56mph? I would say yes.
There is also a cheeky National speed limit sign facing the carriageway on a side road and its silly as the road is tiny in comparison to the dual carriageway..
Also as you go through the photos
(some are close ups) at the end.. you will see that the GOOGLE CAR has selected a VERY CO-INCIDENTAL MOMENT! Chances?! As the ROAD SIGNS INSPECTORS ARE ACTUALLY CHECKING SIGNS AND FITTING ONE RIGHT AT THE END, JUST BEFORE THE NATIONAL SPEED LIMIT SIGNS?! Is google having a little joke here?
Ok.. so Take a look through & see what you think after I have given you my opinion (& I am correct by the manual prescription)
I havent done Northbound.. You can have a look on google maps if you want to check.
My computer was acting up & not loading google maps or the browser window, just to be awkward... So I took the screen shots with my phone camera instead.. to work around the obstruction.. (a Little like CPS & Police obstructions)

Can we find out who those two survey/sign fitters are & fine them for unsafe incompetence?
