Metric Mis-information on Road Signs

Guidelines by Sedgemoor District Council in Somerset advocate the use of illegal metric road signs.

The guidelines feature illustrations of 100 metre and 250 metre signs as examples of designs that are "acceptable" for signs displayed in association with hotels, guest houses, pubs and other tourist establishments.

The law states clearly that metres are not permitted on British road signs. The guideline's offending diagrams are reproduced below.
