We often use their sites................ as you say something between an aire and a camping site.............................Do make sure you let them know you are posting on here and let us know what happens.

Do you have contact details for us all to urge them to do the right thing...............it could have been us ?????

Peter and Carmel

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

The best things in Life...........................are not Things !!

Life is really, really great …...........sometimes it's a bit sh*t............and then you die !!

one thing we have learned with CC sites is this - the barriers can come down when a vehicle is stationary (saw it happen to a French vehicle in Aix Les Bains). our strategy is for the passenger to check the exit is clear before triggering the barrier lift so the driver can get a clear run out.

hope the owner gets resolution

and the Lord said unto John "come forth and receive eternal life". but John came fifth and won a toaster........

Peter, as mentioned I just copied this from a Facebook group, no further info available, just thought it would be a useful 'heads up' for our members.

Good advice from fatbudda above.

True to form. Fords have more insurance claims.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Good thinking, but tough for those of us travelling alone. Can't think of a solution if you don't have a clear view from behind the gate.

Jean, you need to carry some bollards with you and nip out and block the road with them

Seriously, though, there should be enough room after exiting the barrier to wait for traffic to pass. Not rocket science. When we applied to make an entrance into our field we had to have an enormous splay for visibility where any vehicles could wait after shutting the gate behind them or pulling off the road to open the gate.

Yes, there should be Pat - and with these being modern entrances, you'd hope they've got it right.
