20 is plenty


A lot of the residential side-streets have a 20mph speed limit.

To emphasise the fact, you'll find a lot of wheelie-bins plastered with these "20 is plenty" signs. If you were a motorist, would you take in this message and slow down?

As can be seen from this shot of Edna Street at its junction with Market Street, a lot of problems are also caused by people who park on double-yellow lines and on the pavement.

Ha! At first, I thought that this was going to reference the weight of the trash bin.

I like how it is in front of another sign with the speed limit of 30. :)

Hmm isn't it weird that the bins say 20 but the actual road sign says 30?

If you look closely, the 30 sign actually shows that you are exiting the 20 zone.

here they just stick road bumps in the middle of the road....

Oh they do that as well -- even on bus routes!
