Although way off topic, I have a proposition that there should a maximum total number of cones permitted to be in use at any one time, which would limit the number of road repairs and hence disruption to traffic.

The devil does indeed make work for (my) idle mind


Talking of traffic cones...I walk down a street after work....the whole street,have put cones out.along the edge of the kerb..to stop people parking there.

That is a public highway...I wonder how they get away with it?

I wouldn't be happy,if I lived down that street.

Are you sure that they haven't been put out pending a roadsweeper's arrival?

No,Dex...I asked one of the neighbours on the other side of the road...she told me,it was so they could get a space,once arriving home from work.

I know..I'm a "busy body"...

Actually I was Pauline, and 'No' most of the postmen and women from our delivery office who wear shorts year round do it for convenience......
