The passing of the passing place 0
Remote though they are, even the Outer Hebrides are not far enough away to escape the far reaching tentacles of European legislation. It seems the quirky, rhomboid shape of the passing place sign has offended the Keepeurs of the Livre de Standards (see Note 1), who have dictated that they must be replaced by square signs, an example of which below.
Locals remain phlegmatic.
Note 1 – No attempt is being made to single out the French for blame, I just can’t do any of the other European languages very well.
