Dam­aged road sign may spell trou­ble for mo­torists

New Straits Times - - News -

BESUT: A major road sign in Jalan Kam­pung Raja, Kam­pung Che Salamah here, was dam­aged when a heavy ve­hi­cle rammed into it.

Pedes­tri­ans said the road sign must be re­paired im­me­di­ately as road users might lose their way, es­pe­cially at night.

Mar­ket­ing ex­ec­u­tive Sam­siah Saifuddin, 43, who was trav­el­ling to Kota Baru to meet a client, said the poles sup­port­ing the road sign were tilted and the struc­ture was bent.

“I had to drive closer to the sign to look at the words writ­ten on it. I did not want to take the wrong turn.”

She said the dam­aged road sign in­con­ve­nienced road users, es­pe­cially those from out­sta­tion.

ACTIONLINE:

A Besut Dis­trict Coun­cil spokesman said the coun­cil would send its per­son­nel to check the road sign.

They will iden­tify the author­ity that had ju­ris­dic­tion over it and in­form the party.
