To be fair, one of the few things Garbage Island is OK at is treating public footpaths as more than an afterthought – there are lots of places where you can cross UK motorways on foot, using bridges and underpasses built at significant expense, even in places where it’s just a handful of hikers and bored rural kids using them. And they’re good-quality footbridges, too – you could almost pretend you were in a functioning Northern European country.

Obviously this is not an example of that. But c’mon, there are US cities where it’s harder to get across the street.

How long has the footpath been there vs the motorway?

Yea, could someone translate please.

I wonder did they plonk a motorway right over a right of way? There are various easements that would preclude it and sticking a sign on it would be the kind of shit that happens when someone sues pointing this out and the authority applies for retention.

Probably hundreds of years. Most footpaths in the UK are ancient rights-of-way.

We will pray with those old druids.
They drink fermented fluids.
Waltzing naked through the woo-ids.
And it’s good enough for me.

Videographer unhelpfully does not provide legible image of sign.

From watching the video on YouTube, the sign appears to say “[Dual?] carriageway, cross with care”, along with a prayer in Welsh to Saint Christopher, patron saint of travelers.

I am not in the office at the moment. Send any prayers to be answered.

That’s better than trying to cross 270 at Rockville, but you don’t really want to cross an interstate anywhere.

“With care” is doing all the heavy lifting with this sign.
