Cannabis leaf sticker put over traffic light
TRAFFIC in a Hampshire village has gone totally to pot.
Drivers in North Baddesley couldn’t believe their eyes after jokers had slapped black cannabis leaf symbol masks to several green lights.
Motorist Bill Chandler, from Romsey, spotted the prank on the lights at the junction of Botley Road and Castle Lane.
“They would have had to be really tall to reach the lights because they are high up,” he said.
Local councillor Alan Dowden said: “This is a safety device and defacing it in this way could lead to concentration being lost by a driver and an accident of some kind.
Anyone who sees this sort of thing happening should report it.”
Highways staff have now removed the images.
