Anna VOLKOVA, “FACTS” (Poltava)
Only 10 days stood an unusual road sign “beware of turtle!” on the route Kremenchug — Horishni Marshes. It on their own initiative and for their money set of Kremenchuk entrepreneurs Andriy and Yuliya Pogrebna, worried about the mass death of turtles on this stretch of road in recent years.
The installation was agreed with the Agency of local roads of Poltava region — it promised to take the characters on its balance sheet. Set of 4 pieces (two are from two sides on the part of the route Poltava — Alexandria on the outskirts of Kremenchug), cost spouses Winery at 1600 UAH.
In the opinion of management Agencies for local roads, irregularities in the installation was not because of non-standard informational road signs exist all over the world. However, patrol police of Kremenchug has stated that arbitrariness is not allowed, and 28th June from one of the characters left just a metal pin sticking out of the ground.
— Traffic signs are regulated by the rules of the road and state standards and should be understandable to drivers, said on the eve of the dismantling of the Kremenchug public television specialist division security battalion patrol police Alexander Marchenko. — So road signs with turtles will be replaced by a sign “Wild animals” with a picture of a deer.
Yuliya Pogrebna wrote an angry post on his page in Facebook: “Return what does not belong to you, what you cut off and sold for scrap, she said to Alexander Marchenko. — You know who paid for the making of these signs, but did not dare even to warn, but basely stole them! But strength and courage enough to cut only 1 marks… Come for others, only to inform colleagues in 102…”
“Very sorry for the destruction of good deeds”, “it Turns out, the life of a turtle has no value?”, “Indignation is no limit!”, “Who sign prevented? Precisely cut for scrap! Chaos!!!” — people write in the discussions.
Perhaps signs with a deer meet state standards, but it is unlikely they will match the real situation on this stretch of road.
Earlier, the “FACTS” reported that in the Odessa region, two young men sacrificed their lives to rescue a dog who fell into a Fox hole. As a result, they died under the landslide.
