    PSA: if you /must/ hijack traffic light poles by busy spiral roundabouts to put up posters for events; at least make sure the colour contrast and font size is selected so they are readable from inside a vehicle stopped at the stop line – otherwise its completely pointless doing this (you are just putting yourselves at potential danger and risking getting in trouble – doing this is in an ethical grey area as when a roundabout had been signalled its already over capacity and classed as a collision risk)

    So far I’ve noticed two flyers where by the time I’ve been able to read all of them the event has already happened – and this is in spite of having to use that roundabout almost every day driving to work or to the radio station at Felixstowe I volunteer at (and I did have my eyesight officially checked to get my driving licence in the first place!)

    This is a shame, as I would have posted the event details up on here and told people at the radio stations..

    if you are worried the flyer will be too big and thus get taken down by Highways England or the Council, then perhaps find a better place to put them! (tip: there are plenty of spare walls on abandoned areas of retail parks/industrial estates..)

    LMFAO

    at least being able to write a long paragraph confirms I’m not simply too old and blind to read the flyers ?

    I did have my eyes tested again this week (in UK this is encouraged every 1-2 years) and was well within the standards for both driving and reading small text..

    To be fair a crew who were advertising a ska tribute band did make a fairly readable flyer, showing how contrast is important (not surprisingly they used the “two tone” look and an 80’s “DIY punk” type design – this still works well today!)

    Auch wenn du am Abgrund stehst, und gar nichts mehr verstehst,
    wachen Engel über dich, halten dich im Licht und lassen dich nie fallen.
