You know those signs you see in built-up areas marking zones where trucks may not park? And the corresponding ones that end the zones? Well, maybe they've been there all along, but tonight I spotted two of them on the M50, just north of the Ballinteer exit (one in each direction). Specifically, the signs claim to mark the end of the no-parking-for-lorries zone.
Why on earth did anybody suppose we should have these on a motorway?
PS: For extra credit - anybody familiar with the M1's northern extremity at Dundalk will have noticed that lorries often park up on the hard shoulder in each direction just inside the motorway regulations (IOW, just where they shouldn't). Last time I drove the route, I saw a small sign on the verge, too small to be intended for reading by anybody not stopped alongside. Does anybody know what it says?
