Above is the current road sign system
Interfering. Inability to leave well alone.
Incompetent people interfering when there is absolutely no need to, nobody appreciates it and it simply makes things worse.
No profession other than politics has more raw hubris sewage sloshing about in it than “graphic” design. Manual is such a design firm; a firm so deeply sunk in slop that you know without looking that it has to be based in San Francisco and hence already targeted for nuking from orbit. But before they go out on the downstroke they’d like to take a crack at the road signage system. Why? Because they can ultimately write “an app for that.”
And how do these “progressive” firms justify b***ering it all up?
For a country so heavily reliant on cars, we feel the current signage system is confusing, inconsistent and messy. Our plan is to modernize and add clarity to a signage system that millions of road users rely upon every day. The current use of shields feels dated and too “police state”, so we have abandoned them in the main system.
Yep – they are the efficient ones in their eyes and what went before is inefficient and outdated. Therefore it needs to be ruined. They appoint themselves as our custodians. They don’t go out and experiment on some minor roads out in the desert – no, they have to alter major highways and cause multiple-car pile-ups to feel useful to society.
As the writer asks – which signs are less confusing at 70 mph?
