    Speed sign prank is over

    6/01/2009 1:00:00 AM
    WODONGA Council will today move to put the brakes on a prank that has left motorists in two minds at a well-known speed trap.The speed sign on the corner of Mayfair and Dundee drives was “modified” late last month to show 60kmh but the road markings still indicate the limit as 50kmh.
    Yesterday Wodonga police said the limit was “definitely” 50kmh.
    The council said it had not changed the sign.
    A closer inspection by The Border Mail showed the fake signage had been glued to the original.
    The road, the responsibility of the council, is a major thoroughfare for traffic in West Wodonga.
    It was listed as one of the city’s 12 mobile speed camera locations in a list released by Victoria Police in November.
    Yesterday council officers inspected the sign.
    But they were unable to remove the fake signs.
    A council spokeswoman said the sign would be completely removed this morning.
    “We will also be looking for where we might be missing a 60kmh speed sign,” she said.
