Rally?....RALLY??
My afternoon coffee time at West Shore Cafe was brutally truncated by the arrival of scores of those noisy, polluting, gas guzzling, smelly, ignorant Bas£&@rds!! 
They rival the Great Orme tour bus for the amount of life shortening filth they spew out.
My visits to the Mostyn St post office and the bank were blocked by the event, so I went to West Shore to get away from them.
But No! ......oh no.

Delighted to see the traffic warden slapping fines on every single one of the Cambrian Rally cars parked on the side roads in Llandudno today.  Every man Jack of ‘em!
90 minute zones mean exactly that!

So what does everyone think about the new road layout outside the Craigside Inn? The road is now split into three lanes - one very narrow lane coming down and two lanes going uphill. I think the main difficulty lies with people driving uphill who wish to turn right into the Craigside Inn, they will effectively be stationary in the overtaking lane as they wait for a gap in the traffic coming downhill, surely?

They have now put white lines in the outside lane and lined out a junction to turn into Craigside. I thought it was a bit odd when i first saw the new layout on monday.

Yesterday we drove across the Tal Y Cafn bridge and there was a notice saying that the bridge is closing on 25th Feb 2019.    It will be closed for FIVE weeks while work on it is going on

Who on earth decided to put red lines across the road on the approach to the roundabout between Marl Farm and Black Cat on the A470 (the roundabout at the top of the hill where Narrow Lane goes off).  It's like driving along a railway line with just the sleepers in place, plays havoc with the suspension on my two-month old car, and that is at 20mph.  Also nearly shakes my teeth out even at that slow speed.

Why are highways department putting up so many obstructions to drivers - these red lines, pavements that extend outwards at irregular intervals, speed pumps, extra traffic islands, extra lanes.  Fill in the potholes instead, please.

Be interesting to see if there are more accidents as a result of the roads not being so clear, but I doubt we will ever get that comparative information.

Tal-y-Cafn Bridge was built in 1897, although it was re-surfaced in 1978 !!!

Unfortunate numeric anagram there !!!

We drove over those awful red stripes yesterday in our Mercedes CL55 AMG,  very uncomfortable even in that car with its ABC suspension.  Almost as bad as the dreaded speed humps!

I drove along that stretch of the A470 today and DVT wasn't exaggerating, it really is a bit of a boneshaker
