One of the owners / operators of
POOL MARKET has requested that these photos of notices displayed around
the site be uploaded to the WWW. It is his view that POOL MARKET is
private land and as such it is not a public place
and the public need to know this fact.
don't be deceived.
The land and car parks outside POOL MARKET
and TESCO might well be
private land but it is also a public place because the public
have access at all times. The drink drive law applies to all roads and
public places such as POOL MARKET. A driver found this out to his cost
in the nearby TESCO EXTRA car park when he was arrested and later
convicted of drink driving despite his protests that the car park was
private land and the law does not apply. It does.
One year after these notices
were displayed at POOL MARKET the same driver was arrested for drink
driving at POOL MARKET and later convicted and banned for four years
despite the notices proclaiming it to be private land thus rather
proving the point that the notice on the motorcycle is good advice and
POOL MARKET IS
A PUBLIC PLACE
PLEASE DISREGARD THE NOTICES
DISPLAYED AT POOL MARKET STATING OTHERWISE
"temporary" notice would be more appropriate to display at Pool
