I reported this on Sunday 16 May, On road into Aston Clinton from Aylesbury 2 professional made 30mph signs have appeared, there is no obvious reason for them (road works etc) and they are in a 50mpn zone I can only assume assume they are illegal. These have been there for 4 or 5 days. Dangerous if a driver thinks are legal and brakes suddenly. (See also separate report re blanked out 50mph sign covered up.).

You response is below "Thank you for your report.

We have fully investigated your report, however, we have been unable to identify the issue.

I have just come past the point and the 2 signs are still there?

I can only assume either of the following:

1. Are They are legal, are they? If so why is there still 50mph signage also? 2. They are illegal and whoever is putting them out is removing them when you inspect? 3. You investigation was flawed.

My question is are they legal and why?

On road into Aston Clinton from Aylesbury 2 professional made 30mph signs have appeared , next to the 30mph, assume they are illegal. These have been there for 4 or 5 days. Dangerous if a driver thinks are legal and brakes suddenly. Alos the 50mph on way out of village has been defaced / covered up.
