Contradictory speed signs in Plymouth blamed on sabotage
Saboteurs are being blamed for switching speed signs to bamboozle drivers with conflicting messages.
The signs state maximum 20mph and 30mph as drivers enter Austin Avenue in Plymouth - and as they exit, the speed signs are reversed.
Plymouth City Council said it placed them facing the right way and someone had "deliberately turned them round".
It said the signs would be changed back and fixed so they were less likely to be tampered with.
Austin Avenue was one of a number of roads in Plymouth which got new signs after the speed was cut to 20mph maximum.
Lorraine Couling, who works in a shop on the corner of the road, said: "They are are very confusing, you are not sure if you have to do a 30 out or 30 in, or 20 in or 20 out."
One woman walking her children to school: "People drive quite slowly down here when they see I have children with me, but the signs make no sense at all.
"I feel sorry for the drivers because one minute they're told its 20 and the next it's 30."
