British motorists confused by even the most simple road signs

[Published on 22 April, 2001]

Sixty per cent of British drivers stopped for a survey believe that the
"Beware of Cattle" road signs indicate areas infected with foot-and-mouth
disease.
The survey by the RAC Foundation found that half of all British motorists are
baffled by road signs.
Misinterpretations included a sign for toads crossing that was identified as
indicating a French restaurant.
Only 10 per cent recognised signs that a dual carriageway had ended, and 20
per cent thought that those ordering them to give way to oncoming vehicles
meant "one-way street ahead".
Five per cent said that signs warning of side winds meant "kite flying area",
while 50 per cent did not recognise the sign indicating an end to a speed limit.


AND NOW, THE SINGAPORE VERSION...

What the sign means: ACCIDENT AREA

What some wrongly think...



What the sign means: ROAD NARROWING

What some wrongly think...



What the sign means: SLIPPERY ROAD

What some wrongly think...



What the sign means: ROAD LEADING TO QUAY/SEA

What some wrongly think...



What the sign means: ERP ZONE AHEAD

What all correctly think...
