Britain's bossiest town - from The BBC

Quote
A town is to review its "oppressive" signage after a scathing review from a tourist who said he felt "bombarded by notices".

A visitor to [snip] in [snip]'s online review said: "Absolutely everywhere I looked there was a sign telling me to comply in one way or another".

The signs include advice about keeping dogs on leads, and how to feed birds.

Before you click on the link, where do you think it might be?

I, too, saw the original BBC article, so I also know the answer - and it did surprise me.  Roll Eyes

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

In the spirit of QI, perhaps nobody wants to risk provoking the claxon by posting any of the following suggestions:

a. Melksham;

b. Taunton;

c. Totnes;

d. Dawlish;
