The Age of the Sign 2009   Every town and every village is full of signs. Can we move without being warned of the danger of this or the danger of that? Can we take the car out of the drive without guidance, warnings or threat of a fine?  

Village life in the past was self regulated. You took your own risks and travelled in your own way. When cars first appeared on the streets there were neither speed limits nor compulsory driving tests which were introduced in 1935.   Wigginton a small village has over 40 to guide us through our streets. Many are needed but it is an open question if we need them all.

  • I think the sign should read: Wigginton please spell carefully. The number of times I see references to WigginGton, even on official publications and signs, would drive me mad if I lived there.
