BRIGG FLASHER IS NO MORE
The Brigg area’s best-known flasher has been taken away by the authorities.
No, not that sort of flasher! We are making reference to the flashing speed sign encountered by drivers leaving Brigg and crossing into Scawby Brook, on the A18.
It was put in place to remind motorists they were entering a new 30mph limit and told them their actual speed, displayed on a screen.
That 30mph restriction has now been in place for a good many months and by now people should have got used to the lowering from 40mph. So the flashing sign has been taken away - common practice across the area.
