those blue markers are for the fire fighters so they know where the water pipes are located.

i spent some time figgering it out, it is a new system to mark the position of fire fighters water hydrents (man holes on the road), the old white poles with red tops are hard to find because of gardens and vandals distorying them,

if u notice to there are yellow line along the curb to say no parking there and also they are every 4 or 5 houses apart

now do u understand:thumbsup:

insurence claims

i wonder if you could claim that they could cause an accident,cos they are in the middle of the road.not that a cat eye made a difference to a car,but a bike maybe!!
