Slashdot article

Having actually been to Barrow Gurney (between Bristol and Bristol Airport), I can see why they don't want trucks there, even driving a regular car is kinda tricky there...

But this is a thing of modern times... People use an in-car navigation system and think it's okay to switch off their brains. Happens in my town as well. Despite big signs saying "NO TRUCKS" and the local road layout changed so the road to the industrial areas is more prominent than the one into town, trucks still end up here, then have to stop in the middle of town and ask for directions ("if you would have taken a right at the sign that said you were not allowed to take a left...").
