Sign saying: No right turn sign on Swain's Lane
This is the height of the sign! Jill on the Swain’s Lane traffic reduction.

“I got in my car and looked everywhere for the no right turn sign on Swain’s Lane and then I finally found this. You have to actually look up high before you see it. It’s too high for anyone in a car seat to see.”

Hi. My name is Jill. I work for the Synergy team - a speaking up group for People with Learning Disabilities. I am also a JARGON BUSTER. I go to meetings and to make sure people don’t speak in jargon I have a bell to ring, and Jargon John comes with me. It is very important for me to speak out for people with learning disabilities when it comes to Jargon. In everyday life it is on TV, in hospitals, schools, all over the place. It is my job to stop people using Jargon and use Easy Read with pictures. It is very important for the future. A future where a person with a learning disability can be independent but still get the help they need to guide them in the right direction. Jargon is not a good thing. It is only there to make you look good. People with learning disabilities need to know what is being said in their meetings.
