The yellow peril

FROM JOHN JEFFAY AT CASCADE NEWS LTD    0161 660 8087 /  07771 957773  john@cascadenews.co.uk / www.cascadenews.co.uk Syndicated for Dundee Courier with pic A HAPLESS council worker tried painting two sets of double yellow lines in this 2ft-wide gap. The road in Anstruther, Fife, is far too narrow to park any car, and the yellow mess has left locals baffled. The markings are beside a collapsed wall, which crumbled eight years ago causing St Ayles Crescent to be closed at one end.   “It’s the craziest set of double yellow lines I’ve ever seen. It’s been quite a subject of conversation,” said local Martin Dibley, secretary of  Anstruther Community Council  There have been lengthy wrangles over who is responsible for mending the structure and it remains fenced off.

One better than the Irish version, the Fifeshire rules indicate that you can’t park there

at all, at all, at all.

    I’m sure the Chinese could find a few ways to park!

    Apropos of which, my last trips to Shanghai were 20 years ago. As far as I could see they had no traffic rules at all, such that a newly finished highway was hampered by coolie carts and others crossing it with no eye for motor traffic at all, presumably passing from A to B as and where they always had. No doubt it has changed but multiple yellow lines are an unlikely development.

    Do you think there is a special qualification required to get a job with the line painters?
    Like an IQ of under 80?
    Must be.

    It’s probably like an army job. If there’s no rule, there’s chaos.

    I’m think I’m beginning to understand why the Scots had problems with the Edinburgh tram way.
