Freo's View


Posted in fremantle, pedestrians, TRAFFIC by freoview on February 25, 2017


One of my true pet hates is visual pollution. There are signs just about everywhere and they look bloody awful.

There are signs making us aware of other signs ahead of us, and signs for retailers in such abundance that no one notices them any more, so they become useless, a bit like high-visibility clothing in mining towns. Everyone wears them, so they are no longer noticed.

There are eleven signs at the Cappuccino Strip to promote businesses in the Piazza for example, all next to each other.

Does this little support to cross the road near the Heirloom apartments really need two signs stating Refuge Island? I don’t think so!

If motorists don’t notice the pedestrian island they should not be allowed to drive a car.

    Couldn’t agree more Roel and then we get double whammy when these signs are tagged by some of the most thoughtless and selfish in our community.

    True that Roel. And then when you actually need a sign, like say for a street, they are nowhere to be seen! Worst signage I have ever seen.
