Car insurance: Government announces plans to overhaul road signs

Monday, 15 September 2008

Car insurance customers are among those being asked for their input for the biggest review of road traffic signs in the UK for 40 years.

The government has said it is keen to incorporate the latest road traffic sign technology and help to reduce CO2 emissions and congestion.

Commenting on the plans, transport minister Rosie Winterton said: "Road conditions have changed dramatically over the years and road signs need to keep pace with that change to provide the best information possible to all road users."

She stated it was vital to help motorists, pedestrians and cyclists alike understand how to use our highways and thereby improve road safety.

Ms Winterton added that the Department for Transport intended to carry out these changes without cluttering up streets with unnecessary signs.

Earlier this month, the government announced that new motorists would be given advice of reducing emissions and saving fuel during their practical driving test.
