A NEW sign and road markings have appeared outside the airbase where teenager Harry Dunn died — reminding Americans which side to drive on.
Arrows indicating the direction of travel have been painted on each lane and a “kept left” sign put up.
They are near RAF Croughton, Northamptonshire, which is used by US spies.
Motorcyclist Harry, 19, was killed in a crash with a car travelling on the wrong side of the road in August.
The car was allegedly being driven by Anne Sacoolas, 44, the wife of an American diplomat. She has since left the country and claimed diplomatic immunity in the US.
Some people living close to the airbase said the signs and markings had come too late. Others mocked them.
One said: “It’s unbelievable, the idea that top intelligence officers can’t remember which side to drive on.”
“It’s almost an admission that they can’t be trusted to remember, which is a bit damning when they’re supposed to be spying on our enemies.”
Another resident Ian Parkes said on Facebook: “The Highways have painted two arrows leaving the base. One in each direction.
“Just a simple thing that had it been done sooner could have saved a life. It is so tragic and not the first time it’s happened outside a US base.”
Petrol station cashier and experienced rider Harry, 19, died outside a US spy station in Northamptonshire on August 27, when he was hit on his motorbike.
