Traffic calming for pedestrians

This dual purpose sign, placed across the pavement by contractors working for the Council, requests motorists to move their parked cars so that a road hump can be built. It also cleverly slows down people pushing buggies, reckless wheelchair users and speeding pensioners on mobility scooters, by preventing access along the footway, obliging them to stop, descend the kerb, go into the road, pass the parked car, and then mount the kerb again. Milton Road E17, yesterday.
