Health and Safety, French Style:

To put this in context, this is a pontoon for leisure boats about 500m from the city centre. The nearest passenger walkways are some distance away. This makes the metal boom a very desirable way for the legitimate and not-so-legitimate to access the pontoon.

One of the great things about being in France is the noticeable absence of 'thou shalt not' signs.
