Road Signs

Has anyone used the rear of road/direction signs to put up a road safety message?

Dear Michael,

I should hope not. Are we not trying to address the question of sign proliferation? In any case, unless there's been some further deterioration in sign discipline, the rear of a traffic sign should be uniformly grey.

By the way, is there to be some form of RSS Seminar this year?

Kind regards,


Andrew.

Hi.

In my area, Wset Sussex, the problem with road signs is a lot of them are hidden by trees and bushes, so you can't even see the front of them, let alone the back's.

Regards, Roger.

Postscript:

Even supposing the powers that be gave approval to advertisements on the rear of traffic signs - and there's always a danger that they might - these advertisements would be on the wrong side of the road. A rudimentary traffic signing rule is that advertisements of the traffic sign class should (with very few exceptions) be placed on the nearside - incidentally re-inforcing the need to drive on the left in this country.

But anything goes, these days, I've found ...

Andrew.
