VISUAL POLLUTION A PAIN IN THE EYE
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.
