Westwood Thanet McDonald’s and the bizarre zebra crossing.

If you don’t have children then you probably don’t have occasion to visit MacDonald’s and so have probably never noticed this unusual feature of the zebra crossing outside one of our local branches.
Most zebra crossings, perhaps all the other ones, take you and your children from one pavement to another, however this one terminates at a tree in Sainsbury’s car park.
Was there I wonder some irresolvable dispute between MacDonald’s and Sainsbury’s.

    1. Surely you mean KFC unless the county council have branched out into fast food retail?

  5. It's an excellent facility, perhaps brought to us by the same planners who devised this wonderful 10m cycle path in Broadstairs:

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
