On Aldi sketch in paper the traffic flow is a continental one!

Perhaps someone flipped image in error.

No they know something we don't. European road traffic harmonisation regulations obliging us to drive on the right after 'change over month'. so phased in, by road type; Motorways, A roads, then the rest. Daft if you ask me, ought to be by vehicle type, HGV, light commercial then everything else.

I agree with your plan OTE. But you seem to have left out at what stage motorcycles would be scheduled for change?? blink.gif
(PS, I think pedal cycles have already changed! wink.gif )

We could use the opportunity to move motorbikes to the cycle lanes. To avoid confusion, these would be lanes for all two wheelers only. The electric Shopping Trolleys could then take their rightful place on the road.

Albrecht Discount is of course a German company, so it may well be that the artist they used didn't put two and two together.

I think you are being a bit pedantic here. The point of the drawing is how it will look and not the traffic flow. Anyway I am pleased that Aldi's is opening. Like Lidl's they have some good staff and cheap. Another shop competition for this area. And of course people will be employed. This can only be good news.

Why has no one mentioned there appears to be a ghost in the middle of the road, bottom right?

He might be a ghost because the traffic was going the wrong way and he was hit. Maybe there is a moral tale here subliminally added?

There also seems to be 3 trees that have a ghost quality about them. At least compared to the 2 other trees on the left. I can also see a large oblong shadow on the road nearest to us.

You could be right, or perhaps it's something to do with Halloween?

He could have re entered this existence and then gone home.

Seems a fair idea.
After all bicycles don't use cycle lanes do they? They use the pavements.
I know, special motorbike lanes all over the country!! wink.gif biggrin.gif
