Light on traffic control...

The D725 route into Chatellerault has changed over recent months with the addition of three mini roundabouts, something along with pedestrian crossings, the French seem to have embraced with great gusto in recent times.

As we used the route it was note that for the most part there was no traffic control with seemingly a free-for all attitude prevailing. We did have a giggle to ourselves when after leaving the town we headed over to buy some walnut oil, at the mill at  Availles-en- Chatellerault - we came across this set of lights,on red,on a country road with no visible work going on and no other traffic on the road!

They could have loaned them to Chatellerault.


  1. Maybe the workmen set up the lights then went for lunch !!
