Belisha Beacon をご存知?

 Take a look at the picture, and think what this thing is called in the UK. The answer is ‘Belisha Beacon’. Funny name, isn’t it? But that is what it is actually called. The purpose? Well, if you are driving a car and see a pedestrian standing by this poll on the pavement, you must slow down and let the person cross over the road first. It is binding by law!! So while you are driving around the UK, beware of this poll!
