Safety signs 'should be effective'

10th November 2009 | Construction Signs, Warning Signs

One council executive in Somerset has called for the use of effective signs on the county's roads while they undergo maintenance.

Councillor Anthony Trollope-Bellew, the county council's cabinet member for environment, said that safety signs are very important when work is being undertaken on road surfaces, but added that only clear, visible ones should be used.

His comments come after several safety signs were removed from the county's roads because too many were making things difficult for motorists.

"Local residents have told us that this is confusing, and often distracts drivers. We will carry on giving careful consideration to the need for new signs, and will make sure that out-of-date ones are removed," Mr Trollope-Bellew explained.

Meanwhile, recent research carried out by revealed that many motorists are not able to recognise what many warning signs mean, including the no vehicles sign which a third of drivers failed to correctly identify.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19451063-ADNFCR
