Improved Signage for Better Roads: An ERF Position Paper towards improving Traffic Signs in European Roads

This document looks at the importance of investing in and maintaining traffic signs in Europe. Case studies from the UK, Norway, and Australia illustrate the safety benefits and cost-benefit of investing in traffic signs. The report also looks at trends in road maintenance, infrastructure investment, and road fatalities. A number of recommendations are provided including ensuring traffic signs address the needs of older drivers, replacing signs on a fixed schedule, avoiding the over-population of signs, and improving the harmonization of signs across Europe to prepare for future interactions with advanced driver assistance systems.
