The South Deeside View (SDV)

In the last few weeks it seems anyone and everyone driving a vehicle connected with the AWPR construction has once again decided they should display their flashing orange beacon...at all times!

The last straw was when I was in Kwik Fit in Stonehaven last Thursday over lunchtime having a damaged tyre replaced, and two AWPR vehicles arrived, apparently for the men to collect a tyre. The beacon on one of the vehicles was flashing the entire time they were there, and the guys were out of the vehicle speaking with the Kwik-Fit fitter, so they would have clearly been able to see the beacon was on.

I've contacted Duncan Gardner again about this, because as Herbie says - this constant use of the orange lights will lead to other road users ignoring the beacons, when at some point in the future the beacon will genuinely be in operation as a warning/for a purpose, and motorists won’t recognise it as such.

Please report this too, if you are encountering it all the time.
