8.2.1. Where pedestrians frequently use a road without proper footways, diagram 544.1 (S2‑2‑23, see Figure 8-2) may be used to warn drivers of the likely presence of pedestrians in the carriageway. If a footway stops and resumes after some interval, a ‘no footway for distance indicated’ supplementary plate may be used, with the distance varied to show the length of the road which is without a footway.
