MOTORISTS IN A QUANDARY
PIC BY ZULKARNAIN AHMAD TAJUDDIN A DAMAGED signboard near a school in Pengkalan Rinting, Tampoi, has become an eyesore.
Parts of the signboard are missing, making it difficult for motorists to find their way around the area.
Kampung Skudai Kiri resident Rafiee Jaafar, 38, urges the authorities to repair the signboard as it has created problems for motorists who are not familiar with the neighbourhood.
“Many people have approached me to ask where the Tampoi police station is.
“Before it was damaged, the signboard clearly indicated the direction to the police station,” said Rafiee, who is a postman.
He said he was worried that pupils from nearby SK Pengkalan Rinting would play with the metal sheets of the signboard that had fallen to the ground.
“I hope the Johor Baru City Council will repair it soon as the damaged signboard can pose a danger to pedestrians who walk past the structure,” he said.
Another resident Kadir Sulaiman, 56, said the signboard reflected badly on the image of the city.
