The majority of Britons do not understand the road signs they see every day, a study has found. found that more than three-quarters (76 per cent) of UK motorists believe warning signs can be a dangerous distraction, as 46 per cent have been distracted by the notices during driving.

As well as this, it was discovered that nearly a third (30 per cent) have had a bump or near miss on the roads.

Gareth Kloet, head of car insurance at, said: "It is clear that the Government needs to do a better job in educating people on what road signs mean in order to improve road safety. Any accidents caused because of distracting road signs will affect car insurance premiums, which will in turn cost the consumer more money."

To find out opinions, is running an online petition to see which signs the public believes should be revised.
