Prats of The Week - Shepway District Council
Another week dawns, and what better way to start the week than by awarding another one of my prestigious and internationally renowned "Prats of The Week" Awards.
This week it goes to Shepway District Council.
For their bizarre decision to install "shouting lampposts".
The lampposts (£4K each) are designed to photograph fly tippers (and are located near set of industrial bins behind The Old High Street in Folkestone). In addition, whilst the photo is being taken, the lampposts issue a loud verbal warning about not fly tipping and warning people that the lamppost is taking a picture.
Now the theory behind all of that sounds perfectly fine, if it really does deter fly tippers.
However, there is one small fly in the oinkment here.
For reasons that are pretty obvious to all but those in the council, the lampposts cannot distinguish between fly tippers and anyone else who happens to walk near the vicinity of the bins.
The result being that the lampposts take pictures of everyone, and shout (like a drunk waving a vodka bottle) at all and sundry!
