    Default M50 Traffic Signposting Nightmare

    Road traffic law enforcement and particularly very poor signposting on the M50 for the various Junction Offturns is utterly appalling and dangerous. Driving along that obstacle laden highway (roadworks stuff absolutely everywhere) is a very dangerous exercise indeed because there is wholesale disregard for the speed limits.

    There are many discussions among concerned motorists about what is needed to bring a sense of order and to make a positive contribution to public safety on the M50. Might I suggest that what is needed more than any else boils down to two things:

    (a) bigger and better signposting telling motorists to get in their correct lanes and

    (b) speed law enforcement.

    What about some overhead signs with huge arrows identifying traffic lanes well in advance of the actual slip roads ? These are very effective and easy to follow by motorists even those who are on unfamiliar highways as will so often be the case on the primary traffic routes.

    What's there at the moment on our M50 is a pale imitation of what should be there.

    Agreed - There seems to be a race to the bottom to make us a third world country again.
    As before the only thing that's now stopping us being classed as a third world country is the appalling weather.

    Trolls are sometimes controversial and sometimes amusing. You are neither. Give it a break - it ain't working pal.
