Traffic signs in Britain - biggest review in 40 years launched today

13 September 2008

UK Department for Transport has announced the biggest review of British road signs for 40 years.

The review will ensure that traffic signs keep pace with the latest technology, help to cut congestion and emissions and keep traffic moving safely and efficiently without cluttering our streets.

RoadSafe welcomes the review as it will allow road users to renew an interest in how and where signs are used and encourage the introduction of more interactive signs, which have proved to improve safety. More information can be found here.
