Traffic signs or road signs are signs erected at the side or above the road to give instructions or provide information to road users. The earliest signs were simple wooden or milestones. Later, signs with directional arms were introduced.
With increasing traffic volumes in most countries especially in urban areas,many countries have adopted pictorial signs or otherwise simplified and standardized their signs to overcome language barriers, and enhance traffic safety. Such pictorial signs use symbols.
However,it is quite unfortunate that some road constructors are not keen enough while erecting some of these essential road signs hence misleading road users. A photo shared online of a road sign mounted wrongly beside one of the Kenyan roads has left concerned kenyans disappointed.
Below is the post shared by a concerned Kenyan on Facebook;
