A driving instructor with a large following on social media has explained to her fans the meaning of a road sign that some people don’t know the meaning of.
Annie Winterburn, a licensed trainer, runs the @theorytestpractice Tiktok page where she gives her 776,000 followers tips on how to pass the theory test.
In a video, Ms Winterburn explains the meaning behind a parking sign common in the UK.
“I’ve been asked to explain signs like this,” she said. “This sign says you can park between 8am and 6pm Monday to Saturday, but only for one hour.
“No return within the hour – that simply means you’re not allowed to pull out of your parking space, drive around the block and straight back into that parking space.” At least not for an hour,” she added.
Ms Winterburn added that drivers can park outside of the hours stated on the sign “as long as they wish”.
The video has been viewed more than 670,000 times and received more than 17,000 likes.
Some people who wrote in the clip’s comments section admitted they didn’t know what the sign meant until Ms Winterburn explained it to them.
“I have not received a return within 1 hour! Thanks for that!” said one.
Another said: “I always thought no return within 1 hour means you are not allowed to return to the car for at least an hour lol [sic]“.
A third said: “I still don’t get it”.
