Lincolnshire alters road safety signage

Lincolnshire County Council has rolled out new safety signage at pelican crossings in Boston, requesting walkers to wait for the green figure, rather than the green man

The authority has said that the signs are helping to increase safety on the streets, although some locals believe that the alteration may have been triggered by political correctness.

Alan Bell, senior engineer at the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, said: "We need to do all we can to help keep people safe on the county's roads. These signs remind people to cross only when the green figure is lit."

Mr Bell went on to say that the wording of the signage differs throughout the county.

Lincolnshire County Council's move comes after a study by discovered that many drivers in Britain believe that signage should be lit up more appropriately at night.

The website found that 60 per cent of drivers want better lighting at night, while 20 per cent are worried over being tired at the wheel.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801253197-ADNFCR
