A-frame aggravation

March 2, 2016

In  recent times, Unley, like other council areas, has seen an insidious invasion of the inconvenient, unnecessary clutter of advertising A-frames.

Together with the insidious appearance of tables and chairs outside almost every restaurant and café,  and the growing use of the public domain to accommodate dress racks, etc,  they have turned the business-areas of the city into a pedestrian obstacle course.

And for what? The latest ridiculous excuse highlighted in  this week’s “Courier” quotes the proprietor of one of the King William Road  tribe as saying “I have a corner shop. I need to be  seen”.

By whom? Passing motorists? Who should be keeping their eye on the traffic. And can’t, anyway,  see the intrusive  signs because of parked vehicles. By pedestrians, who only have to look to one side to see your wares?


And why all of the above?

A  Council review of the accessibility and (mis)use of footpaths as a whole is in the offing, and Grumpy for one is prepared to press for a return of pedestrian rights.

    Totally agree. These A frames are a nuisance. The traders need to be better controlled. They can’t create unsafe situations. Ditto for shops that have tables outside and create obstacles for pedestrians.

    How long will this review take?
    The A frames are a damn nuisance and blow over in high wind.

    The A frames are a nuisance. They obstruct pedestrians and block line of sight for drivers.

    I support this review about A frames. They are a nuisance and line of sight for motorists can be an issue.
