How often have you thought there are too many road signs, which simply clutter the road, and give sensory overload. Well, now something is being done about it.
Philip Hammond, Transport Secretary, and Eric Pickles, Communities Secretary, have jointly announced that,
“Councils will today be urged to get rid of unnecessary signs, railings and advertising hoardings in a bid to make streets tidier and less confusing for motorists and pedestrians.”
Makes you wonder why the previous government never did this, I guess it was down to their authoritarian and controlling nature.
The government didn’t announce this as a spending cut, but as a way for Council highways departments to save money. So I’m bagging it as my sixth spending cut of the day.
