How to tell you're in a tight marginal?

Yesterday I went for a drive, and it was rather easy to spot when I was within the boundary of the hyper-marginal seat of Hemel Hempstead - Tory majority of 499 votes. As we drove along the highlighted section of road (5.7 miles) Mrs Dizzy and I counted the Tory billboards telling people to "Vote for Change".

There were 33 altogether, which is, roughly 5.7 billboards every mile - desperately wanting to ensure a win methinks.

Incidentally, as soon as you reach Daganll, which is oddly part of Bercow's Buckingham constituency that to the weird boundary shape the billboards stopped.
