When was the last time you put together an order for U bolts?

An AF to metric chart is about 9 million years out of date unless you are trying to work with old imperial fixings say on a car using new tools, yes you can get metric fixings in uneven sizes and some mechanical applications may spec them for various reasons such as strength size or the wall thickness of sockets in tight spaces but plain old off the shelf stuff out of the bag such as U bolts and anchor bolts and the like tend to follow the rule of 2mm steps in size.

Unless he is suggesting this was a bus lane sign from before the 1970's.

Shut up, you nit picking prick!

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
I suppose it could be a Whitworth or BSF spanner. Be worth a fortune to a collector, being metric.
 
I've got boxes full of BSF & BSW spanners. Metric is so much nicer!

If I was a Pikey, I wouldn't bother with a spanner anyway, cut it off at the base with one of these:

Is it a 17mm spanner to change the blade?
 
Park a massive fertiliser truck bomb in the underground car park of the council offices containing the mainframe computer.
