Castle Point mayor pans road signs

The mayor of Castle Point has criticised warning signs outside a school in Thundersley that were devised by children.

They feature a snail and a message that reads "20 is plenty" in an attempt to encourage lower speeds in the area, but the Tory councillor for St Georges Ward Jackie Govier has suggested that they may be ineffective, reports the Echo.

Ms Govier told the news provider: "The signs look like they were designed by children and while I commend them for doing this, they do look amateurish. It could be confusing to drivers what they mean."

She also noted that the signs could distract attention from others in the area and stated that the number of official and unofficial signs on roads is too excessive.

Earlier this week, the Hull Daily Mail revealed that new safety signs will be introduced on a notoriously dangerous stretch of road in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

They will be erected on the Holme Road junction of the A1709. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800690874-ADNFCR
