An ooops moment near Bristol U.K.

Road reflectors are known as "Cat's Eye"  in the U.K.. Ireland and a few other places

They were invented by one Percy Shaw

Here is one from the original design, showing clearly how they got their name



Those of a modern design can been seen in this photo' from Ireland.





Sometimes they are removed.  When this happens the positioning of advisory signs is crucial.

Here is a failure!

I have a feeling that some rapscallion removed the sign from another site, and placed it here.
