Residents who live near a road in Bledlow Ridge have erected a humorous sign after having enough of potholes.

After complaining to Buckinghamshire council, residents decided it was their way or the highway.

The sign warns male drivers to "cross legs", women to "adjust bras" and OAPS (old age pensioners) to "remove teeth".

A number of reports have been made on Fix My Street, the council's problem reporting website, with pothole and road surface issues.

On Wednesday, April 17, a report was made about the "terrible" road surface on Church Lane.

The report said: "This is made up of gravel and stones and where large vehicles are using the road to turn, we are left with uneven road surface and potholes."

Buckinghamshire Council have passed on the report to the Highway Officer, who will carry out an inspection of the issue within 10 working days.

Many large deep potholes along Bennett End Road have been reported to the council, which first appeared in January.

A resident said: "Since then many more large potholes have developed all along the road making it unusable.

"People keep raising problem reports as you close them and do not come to fix the issues. This is not acceptable considering the amount of council tax paid for very limited services received by the villages in Bucks."

Again, the local authority has promised to repair emergency defects to the road once an inspection has been carried out. 

The sign has made people chuckle in the village.

Debbie Greenwood King said: "I love some peoples humour. I had to reverse to get a picture. Thought I’d share. Hopefully it’s brightened some people’s day up."
