Re: V in box

Could they be "tiger's tail" chevrons?  These reduce the danger caused by drivers realising they are in the wrong lane and, at the last minute, weaving across traffic.

Not sure so I've sent an email to the Highways Agency! Let's see how long they take to get back to me???? That could be amusing!

Re: V in box

Maybe the council found some extra white paint and decided to use it up. They tend to do that around where I live. We get new and wonderful road markins all the time. Some of which arn't in the H/C.

I mean, not to sound ignorant, but I havn't heard of 'tiger tails chevrons' . The firstexplanation is the more like to me. 2 second gap markers

Re: V in box

Thanks for that vandADI. The m6/m62 interchange isn't that far away from me. But , like I said, If they are going to introduce a new style of road marking, surley they should inform the public about what it means. The amount of drivers that stop and ask what such and such a thing means , is rediculous. And then to find I can't tell them because its new and i've never come across it before is even worse.
