SP8717 : It is illegal to give way to oncoming traffic !

taken 7 years ago, near to Wingrave, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

It is illegal to give way to oncoming traffic !
It is illegal to give way to oncoming traffic !
The nearer of these two signs is very strange. At first I took it to be the "Give Way to oncoming traffic" sign - but the blue sign 30 yds ahead means the opposite. And the small red arrow is for oncoming traffic - so it means the same as the blue sign ... BUT white circular signs with red rims are *order* signs - you are therefore being commanded to take priority over oncoming traffic - give way to it at your peril !
Found on the lane from Long Marston to Wingrave. The pinch point requiring the priority signs is caused by a small bridge over Thistle Brook - see SP8717 : Thistle Brook - dry watercourse & SP8717 : Thistle Brook - a tiddly dribble
