These fabulous new signs have appeared all along the M4 (and N bit near M50) and along the M7. 1. Every half KM, is that really necessary? 2. On a pole, is that really necessary? 3. Quite a large signs, is that really necessary? 4. Is that really necessary?
Ordinarily, I love Leo, but I'm not happy with this roadside clutter and expense, Mr Varad kar
Who comes up with these ideas? Why are they necessary, it is not like you can get off the road until the next junction anyway. If you breakdown, what is the likelyhood you will remember what the last milestone said anyway. This is just roadside junk. Do I really need to know how many kilometers I am from the end of that section of the road and travelling in a northerly direction? FFS if I did not already know I was travelling towards Dublin and it was about 30 miles away I would suggest I would not be in a fit mental or other state to hold a driving license anyway. The Government wants austerity, stop wasting money on uneccessary things like this.
I would love to be the company that is suppying and erecting these things at every half a kilometer. No doubt when they have put these up on every road in the country they will come up with some other signage we need and convince the NRA that they are a good idea.
There is signage overload on many roads. If I am every caught for speeding, I wonder would the defense that you were distracted by the dozens of other totally useless signs around the speed limit sign be a mitigating circumstance.
