I started a post a couple of weeks ago about the idiotic behaviour caused by a temporary road block near our house. Briefly - a diversion was put in place routing cars along a separate route; the normal road was blocked barring a narrow, traffic cone-lined section that led onto our housing estate. However, numerous bozos (we reckon about 1 every minute or so) used this route onto the estate either because they didn't read the numerous signs indicating a diversion or they thought the estate residents had priviledged access avoiding the diversion. Okay, this is where it gets good. They've now taken away the road block, so the road is back to normal. Hence, we would expect the traffic to be moving normally. However, a huge volume of the traffic (we reckon 90%) is still using the diversion. And before you ask: (1) it's slower (especially as a set of traffic lights have been reset so traffic using the old diversion is no longer favoured); and (2) it's absolutely clear as daylight that the road block has been removed.
