Are double yellow lines being taken too far?

Double yellow lines on street

We have 25 examples to show you today.  It should be obvious to everyone how they should look, all neat and tidy.  We start with a pretty photo of a road, which could be any road in Britain.  We’re not sure why, as it seems like a large, quiet road, but it has perfect double-yellow lines on it.  That’s what we’re aiming for.

We have been careful to select only those that we know were painted by a local council, rather than a disgruntled member of the public.  So, the next 21 will make you laugh and, in some cases out of disbelief, cry.  We will end this piece with a couple of works of art and one example that we really can’t explain.
