Since the proliferation of 30mph zones a decade or two ago, we've been used to (40) signs marking the end of the lower limit area...
.. this year however, all these (40) signs are gradually vanishing and are being replaced by...
.. one less familiar to island motorists who haven't driven elsewhere... sometimes known as the 'derestriction' sign, has the international meaning 'end of maximum speed limit'. In the UK, however, it has been given the meaning 'national speed limit applies' - http://www.abd.org.uk/speed_limit_signs.htm
A variant previously used locally.
So we are now back to square one where the visitors to the island have to remember that 40 is the 'national' limit, because there aren't any signs to help them! (Is this yet another part of the current ministerial vogue for Jersey to model itself as a nation? LOL)
Rumour has it that all this has come about because the (40) signs were actually illegal as far as standard regulations go, and this loophole was used by someone to get off the hook for a speeding offence..... so TTS had no option but to make a whole load of new signs and travel the island replacing them to correct the earlier ****-up :)
My pics? What can I say... but that there are two types of photographers : artists and recordists. I'm a recordist - for me it's a technical challenge to try to capture what the eye sees, rather than what the imagination sees. I'm no artist.
My camera is good enough for the web, I'm not interested in spending a fortune on DSLR and lenses, mucking about in pic editors, filters and all that malarkey.
I'm also driven to share, publish, and show things to people when they're interested in specific things - like island scenery. If I was into art, I'd despair at just how much there is out there already, and how difficult it would be to find an audience because no-one has time to wade through billions of pretty pictures.
If you want to see what Jersey looks like, then hang around here and I'll do my best to show you. Thanks!
