A warning for motorists
The sign is on the Long Meadow car park. The red no entry sign is probably redundant as vehicular entry to Long Meadow Passage is now prevented by bollards, not to mention a skip.
But what is the purpose of the exclamatory warning sign?
"Motorists! Don't leave valuables in your car"
Is it to warn people of a huge amount of crime in the area? Is it to suggest they carry their valuables on their person so they can get mugged instead? Are motorists considered too simple to be aware of risks unless they have them pointed out? Doesn't it give the thief an excuse for their behaviour?
Such signs to me seem symptomatic of the "blame the victim" mentality too prevelant in today's society.
Where are the signs saying "Criminals! don't steal from parked cars - or the full force of the law will fall upon you"?
OK, rant over.
A contribution to signs, signs.
