Transport User Voice – March 2020 – Road users call for better information
27 February 2020
Sort My Sign campaign
Fed up of road signs that are missing information or hidden by overgrown trees?
Our new nationwide campaign, Sort My Sign, encourages England’s road users to report poor road signage on motorways and major ‘A’ roads managed by Highways England.
We want to hear from you. If you’ve recently seen signs and information that aren’t up to scratch we want you to report it. Send in your examples of signs on motorways and major ‘A’ roads:
- you can’t see
- need fixing
- you find confusing.
We’ll use what you say to press Highways England to sort individual problems, and work to get policy change so these things don’t happen in future.
The Sort My Sign campaign aims to increase the usefulness and effectiveness of information on roads, including messages on electronic signs. This will allow more road users to make informed decisions in plenty of time, improving safety and reducing stress.
We will use these examples to build up a map of issues across England and press for improvements for road users.
Transport Focus is calling for Highways England to:
- sort broken or inaccurate signs reported by road users
- provide better information during delays and unexpected disruption
- review the existing standards for signs on motorways and major ‘A’ roads.
Road users can report poor road signage and find out more about the campaign at: transportfocus.org.uk/sortmysign.
