Labour's illegal signs

Labour’s Stop Sign campaign has hit a brick wall. David Farrar has just posted that these signs and the campaign they have mounted is actually illegal. The traffic sign rule book makes this clear.

Labour has placed their MPs and campaign workers, people who’ve waved or placed the signs near to the road, in a pickle. They are breaking the law anytime they go anywhere near a road with the signs. They should come clean and pay the fines.

Their Facebook site is filled with pictures of the guilty MPs and their supporters clearly breaking the law.

Iain Lees-Galloway looks guilty in his recent nasty campaign outside the business of the National candidate on a busy Palmerston North road:

Louisa Wall is clutching a sign in one of these pics – did she go near a road at all?

Trevor Mallard’s election campaign has a small set back with all his illegal signs:

    Who would have thought that this entire Labour campaign to try to derail the National-led Government may just derail itself. Alanis’ words spring to mind “Isn’t it ironic, don’t ya think?”

    Excellent – I recommend that when ever Labour are out with their illegal stop signs they pull over immediately and report the offence to the local police quoting the a law called Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004 and Rule 3.2(5)(a) which appears most relevant:

    3.2(5) A person must not install on a road, or in or on a place visible from a road, a sign, device or object that is not a traffic control device, but that:
    (a) may be mistaken for a traffic control device

    Indeed it is the civic duty of every person to report such offending.

      Getting to one place faster never hurt Helen now roger, what makes John Key any different. Oh is it that he is a more successful Prime Minister than she? At least he didn’t put other people in danger on the road.

    • whafe

      roger, you dodger, get your hand off it…………………. Another full of shit pinko, fuck off

    • Mr. Infinity

      Envy. The left’s deadly sin.

      Stupidity, or at least ignorance, too.

    • reid

      the fines could pay for hone keys pri­vate heli­copter com­pany

      Indeed that could actually happen roger. Key is pretty lucky isn’t he?

  • mickrodge

    Jesus Roger…what were you told about NOT taking the brown acid?

  • Oh, this is precious! Labour just can’t take a trick at the moment, and this is just another example; bring on the next 3News poll; Labour will be lucky to poll better than the Greens!

      Agreed….. this really is ***classic!***

    Just to be the devil’s advocate, isn’t plastering Labour’s sign all over the internet the kind of viral promotion they are looking for? Going out of your way to criticise their signs may contrarily be seen as free advertising.

    • Mr. Infinity

      Understandable. But its gonna take more than a few illegal signs for Liabore to get any traction.

  • gazzaw

    roger, calling anyone a trougher is a little rich coming from labour. Hodgson is the latest case in point – troughing to the bitter end. What the f**k is he going to achieve in Mexico City for those starving constituents of Annettes who are so desperately in need of food parcels? Maybe Pinko Pete could impress us all by donating the cost of his Mexican junket to Annette’s food parcel fund. Pigs might fly.

    Nice try but no cigar!

    Its clearly NOT attempting to be a traffic control device. It is merely the same colour and shape but the wording doesnt try to control traffic.
    The example given is trying to ‘control’ traffic.
    Labours signs do not.

    The other point , I dont see where an ‘non complying rule ‘ is an offence. My reading of the rules is that thay are NOT offences. Faffar is a bit vague here, ( deliberately)

    • Actually Tart it is you who misses out ont eh cigar.

      the rules clearly state “(c) mark or install, or allow to be marked or installed, on a road, or in or on a place that is visible from a road, a sign, device or object that appears to be a traffic control device”

      Note the word “appears”…the signs are the same shape and the same colour, that is covered by appears. This campaign of Labours is rooted.

    • Also, unfortunately for Labour, they have admitted they are designed to look like stop signs…
      On Facebook Stop Asset Sales Posted on April 8 @ 4:53: “We’re about to produce some in the shape of stop signs. Will post here when they’re available.”


  • One comment about the legality of the signs and I got defriended from the facebook page. Pah!

  • reid

    Oh dear. Ever since the conference and the blasted Pike River thing happened we’ve been struggling to make even the slightest impact then Hughes now our stop signs.

    Oh dear.

    Whatever is going wrong?

  • cadwallader

    Love the anagrams above: What do you guys do all day? Whatever it may be, it is more fruitful than anything Goof does.

    I think the only honest sign this lot ought wave about would be: “We stopped being credible years ago!”

    PS Here’s another: “Stop Darren! Stop Darren! Ouch its too tight Darren! STOP!!!”
