Journeys : April May 2009
Where have all the road signs gone? T he RACT has recently fielded a number of queries from its members about several issues concerning road signs. The first concerns the lack of Keep Left Unless Overtaking signs on important dual-lane thoroughfares such as the Southern Outlets in both Hobart and Launceston, and on the Tasman Highway between Rosny and Hobart Airport. RACT members have found it both frustrating and dangerous that so many drivers ignore this important road rule on these and many other roads; they’ve told us that more signs with this message would help remind drivers of the road rule. The second concerns the growing number of End Speed signs on roads. RACT members have complained that advisory signs such as End 80km/h Zone, without a subsequent sign to notify the driver of the resumption or otherwise of another speed limit, are confusing and could lead to motorists travelling at incorrect speeds, through no fault of their own. We are following these queries up with DIER and will report to members in future editions of Motor News Journeys. Your feedback to Vince Taskunas, General Manager Public Policy and Communications, is most welcome – telephone 6232 6578 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. online survey asks you, as an Australian motorist and motoring club member, to tell us what criteria are important to you when you buy a new car.
