Motorists encouraged to report obscured road signs

Motorists encouraged to report obscured road signs

 

Motorists are being asked to report any road signs that are hidden or obscured, a leading road safety association has said.

 

GEM Motoring Assist said that road safety signs that are hidden from view can not only be a nuisance for drivers, but also potentially misleading or dangerous.

 

The safety association has made the pledge at the time of year when roadside vegetation is at its fullest and has the potential to obscure key road signs.

 

Neil Worth, GEM chief executive, said: “Road signs provide vital information for drivers, who will plan their speeds and actions based either wholly or in part on what the signs tell them.

 

“If you can’t see a sign, then your ability to make safe decisions is compromised, especially if you’re on unfamiliar roads. Nourished by recent rain, vegetation at this time of year tends to be at its most prolific, meaning more and more signs risk being partially or completely covered. It’s a growing menace that puts road users at risk.

 

“We can help highways authorities and local councils to know where the problems are by using the reporting facilities they provide. It is vital for road safety that trees, bushes and branches are not allowed to obscure important information, and that everyone using the roads has a clear view of the speed limit and other signs.”

 

The association is asking that drivers report any road signs which are covered or obscured to the relevant local authority and to remember that a speed limit of 30mph usually applies to an area of road with street lighting.
