Hi everyone,today as I was walking past the entrance to the shops on B ie Consum,I spoke to a british driver who had done the left turn into the car parking area coming down the hill.I asked him if he saw the road sign indicating that you can't turn left and that he needed to go down to the roundabout and come back up,all very polite.This driver then told me that the road sign had been erected by two laymen!! and that it is not the law and continued to go on a rant!then continued to drive into the car park,I did'nt know my name was pillock!! but this driver knew,Ha! ha!

That's great if you want to do that but people will and do try to point out the obvious,some folk don't see the sign or don't care.Any nationalities not only Brits.

Only saying.

You can't turn left into Consum carpark ??

I think you are possibly mis reading the signs.

Or I am cos I have been turning left there for 18 years.

I can't get the signage on Google maps unfortunately.

Hi Roland, as you drive down past the vets, the sign is there, next to the green bins, can't miss it, or perhaps you can. Ha!

I think that sign means no left turn into the Commercial Centre square not Consum car park.

Always happy to be corrected if I am wrong of course.

                The sign has been there for about six months I think it was erected to stop the road from being totally blocked on both sides with the cars queuing to enter the Consum car park, why able bodied people can’t use the lower car park or the Black Bull area for parking is beyond me.

Yes the sign is there. No left turn into consum. See so many arguments there about it when they basically queue jump. The sign is just before the entrance on the right.

Ah right thanks for the info.

I have not been over lately so will have to look out for the changes.

I don't really use that car park due to the problems accessing it.

That is an official sign. In addition there is a solid white line on the road. Those who turn left into the Consum carpark are breaking a traffic law.

On occasion, the Police & the Guardia have fined people for doing that.

I watched the police fine 6 drivers one morning for turning left into the consum car park. But I have also seen the police pull in there many times
