Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.
What is it you want to know about this today please?
is this issued by the police or the local council?
I suppose the officer isn't identifiable?
Thank you. It is an interesting argument actually.
I must say that as a matter of law, I'm not sure that it is right that an officer's instructions over rides a traffic sign. An officer cannot give unlawful orders. I suppose you could argue duress of circumstances though if indeed there was no other option.
Point 2 is a very good point though and you should pursue that.
Can I clarify anything for you?
That depends on the management order.
I'm not sure I understand your second question?
As far as signage goes though, it has to be sufficient so that the reasonably observant motorist knows what is or is not required of him. The reasonableness test is fairly common in law.
