People 'need to brush up on road signs before heading abroad'

17th November 2009 | Warning Signs

Many people may struggle to understand road signs overseas and should brush up before they go, according to one company. Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) said that there are unusual signs that people may not understand. The organisation has compiled a list of signs on its website which people should brush up on, following research from the Institute of Advanced Motorists, which found that people driving abroad are three times more likely to be involved in an accident due to ignorance of local traffic laws. Nick Caunter, managing director of APH, said: "More and more holidaymakers choose to hire a car in Europe or drive their own car abroad, so we felt it was important to highlight to drivers the most confusing European road signs." He also advised people to print off the description of the signs before they go abroad, so they do not get stuck. Recent research from found that Brits struggle to identify road signs in the UK, with many not recognising a minimum 30mph speed limit warning notice.
