Yellow peril of car park

PUBLISHED: 15:28 16 September 2009 | UPDATED: 00:12 16 June 2010

Welcome to Honiton – but not if you park in Lace Walk car park. Do we really have to be greeted by such a threatening attitude?

Welcome to Honiton - but not if you park in Lace Walk car park.

Do we really have to be greeted by such a threatening attitude?

A note to the council: some of us often venture outside Honiton, you know, even crossing the border and beyond, and we do know how to keep to the rules of the road and car parks.

I don't habitually disobey direction signs. I assume they are going to be easily seen and easily interpreted.

Locals and visitors to Honiton must beware the yellow metal teeth that will ruin their tyres if they cross them the wrong way.

For me, it's a bit like "Don't mention the war" in Fawlty Towers and I double check every time I go in there in case I find myself going the dreaded wrong way and losing my tyres.

Some visitors must wonder what they've driven into. If this is the best method of organising a car park the council can come up with it's a sad situation.

And, by the way, what's the penalty for driving around the yellow things?
