"...The Land Transport Safety Authority takes a dim view of any roadside signs that could distract drivers. The regulations are pretty clear: "A person must not install on a road, or in or on a place visible from a road, a sign, device or object that is not a traffic control device, but that may be mistaken for a traffic control device."...
...Unfortunately, the Labour Party still didn't get it. General secretary Chris Flatt huffed that it was all a dastardly plot by National Party bloggers and right-wing groups to ruin the campaign. "Any reasonable person would see that the nature of the writing and the `vote Labour' on there indicates they're not traffic control devices," he insisted, and vowed party supporters would continue using the signs, though they had been told to be more cautious near roads..."
Now don't you just hate it when silly little regulations interfere with your plans.
I mean, you KNOW that in the real world no harm will come from what you do- and your great idea is torpedoed by a technicality in law.
Suck, doesn't it.
I could ALMOST fell sorry for Liarbore IF THEY HADN'T INFLICTED SO MUCH OF THIS LEGISLATION ON US ALL!!!
But they did and so do Liarbore-Lite.
All this legislative stifling to save us from ourselves suddenly collides with their grand idea and its's unfair!
Yes- it is! Folks like me have been complaining about this sort of bullshit for years, while you smarmily imposed more and more restrictions on what we were permitted to do with our lives, money and time- for the greater good.
So eat shit and suck it up!
