Road sign review moves announced

20mph school sign

Plans to improve the signs on Britain's roads following the biggest review in 40 years have been announced by the government.

It hopes to reduce the number of signs councils need to use by removing the requirement for some signs.

New signs include one warning lorry drivers of unsuitable roads to help prevent them being misled by sat-navs.

It aims to cut red tape by allowing councils to place some signs without needing government permission.

Councils will be able to use innovative measures such as 20 mph when lights flash signs without needing central government approval.

You're in good company:
