There is two bends in Nidd a left then a right. For all the years that I have passed through Nidd there has been an “S” bend warning post with a 30 mph notice.
In the last 2 weeks the powers that be have plastered the road surface with 4 big 40 mph signs. The 40 inside a large oval that is almost the width of the road.
First these new signs are an eyesore. Second the “S” bend and 30 signs are still there.
Third even with the best handling car that I ever had it would be near impossible to go through the two bends at much over 30 without a prang. There has been quite a few of those, 2 in the last 12 months.
The bends are deceptive. If someone who does not know that section of road they could well come a cropper.
