I had a weekend away in Leeds and after I checked into my hotel I went for a walk around the town, partly to get my bearings and partly to work up a thirst. Yorkshire is famous for its ales and by one account there are around 150 breweries in the region. One pub had this sign on the counter.
Whilst not novel it still made me laugh.
In my line of work the importance of appropriate signage is always stressed. However in these times of an increased blame and sue society companies, local authorities etc. have moved warning signage to a new level. Even for such obvious things like nuts.
On Sandymount Strand there are a number of warning signs. However the passage of time has caused the information to fade. Anyone familiar with this area of Dublin will know how far the tide goes out and may also know reports of people becoming trapped by the incoming tide. Nevertheless I was surprised to see this sign being left in such a condition.
Maybe Dublin City Council have increased their exposure to litigation. Then again maybe we can all just be a bit more careful and take a bit more responsibility for our own actions.
