A driving expert explains a common road sign that people ‘never know’
Few people know the meaning of a road sign to his fans, a driving instructor with a large social media following.
Annie Winterburn, a certified instructor, runs the Tiktok page @theorytestpractice where she gives her 776,000 followers tips on how to pass the theory test.
In a video Ms Winterburn explains the meaning behind a common parking sign in the UK.
“I was asked to explain symptoms like this,” he said. “Between Monday and Saturday, the sign says you can park between 8am and 6pm, but only for one hour.
“No return within an hour – that means you are not allowed to leave your parking spot, drive around the block, and drive straight back into that parking spot. Well, not an hour anyway,” she added.
Ms Winterburn said that outside the hours specified in the memorandum, drivers could park “as long as they wanted”.
The video has been viewed over 670,000 times and received over 17,000 likes.
Some people writing in the clip’s comments section admitted they had no idea what the sign was until Ms Winterburn explained it to them.
“Within 1 hour I didn’t get back! Thanks for that!” One said.
Another said: “I always thought you couldn’t come back in 1 hour, you’re not allowed to come back in the car for at least an hour. [sic]”.
The third said, “I still don’t understand.”
