Re: Re: Road signs
Yes, MT you are right, crazy situation is Department of Transport and NRA run the National M and N Roads, generally these well signed and surfaced. And the Department of Environment and the councils look after everything else.
Good point, there should be a regional roads authority, which should contract out to the private sector, who would be accountable straight to the Minister for TRANSPORT. What probably happens at moment is hard-pressed councils divert money for roads budget to other areas, endangering the lives of Johnny and Mary motorist, never mind the poor pedestrians. They should have roads responsibility taken away from them altogether.
Also, there should be a Driving Standards Authority who should organise all testing and maintain same standards countrywide. At present 31 local authorities, are responsible for driving tests in their own area. You should see the hilarious pass/fail rates
