Just imagine the word "painted" between the second and third words of the title and all should become clear. :wink:

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

Sorry, it's a Welsh joke that English visitors keep boring us with. We seem to have more painted SLOW signs than anywhere else in britain.

My favourite one is along a 60 road outside usk you can still see the markings even though the roads clearly straight for the next few miles :roll:

I've always wonder what "slow" means - does it mean slower than you are going or snail's pace - why don't hey just put a speed limit on it - easy for all to understand - what is slow in one car is fast in another. Daft sign.

I wonder where Heddlu is. I reckoned it must be a really big place because they have their police officers everywhere.
