Road sign overkill 'is a distraction'
A short section of road in Wandsworth which has 26 traffic signs is a distraction for motorists.
According to the Wandsworth Guardian, the 250-yard stretch of the A3 trunk road near West Hill is home to a "miniature forest of signs on both sides of the double and triple carriageway".
The news provider took two "reasonably intelligent passengers" for a drive along the carriageway and asked them to count the number of signs in place.
They spotted just eight signs each - highlighting the dangers of having too many signs on the road.
However, a Ministry of Transport spokesperson said that there was a good reason for each and every sign found on the A3.
The department also claimed that there was no legal requirement for sign spacing and local authorities were only offered "recommended distance" guidance.
Meanwhile, new road signs are being erected on Paddockhurst Road in Worth to encourage motorists to reduce their speed, reports This is Sussex.
