RAC warns of road safety ‘cover-up’

The RAC is calling on local authorities to inspect all the signs on their networks and do everything in their power to ensure they are clear and visible to drivers. The plea comes on the back of a survey, which found that half (53%) of drivers frequently notice road signs obscured by vegetation.

As a result, 42% of respondents admit to accidental violations of speed limits because they couldn’t see signs to indicate otherwise. The RAC’s survey also found that unkempt vegetation isn’t just causing issues for road sign visibility – it’s also creating danger for motorists at junctions or roundabouts.
