Warning: Chickens

This August will see the first new road sign to be introduced to the British road network since 1963, warning motorists of the risk of collision with giant chickens. Only one instance of the sign will be used - on the A64 just outside Tadcaster, where local resident Betty Filtration has been campaigning for warning signs to be erected since being chased by a mutant fowl in 1978.

No reports of oversized chickens have been received since, and Betty's sighting remains unconfirmed, but she is nevertheless pleased that action has finally been taken. In a photo story in her local paper, Betty can be seen pointing to the spot where she claims to have first encountered the chicken and is quoted as saying that she can finally sleep soundly at night in the knowledge that road users will finally be forewarned against interference from maniac poultry.
