New electronic road signs which cost £55,000 each have been installed to 'ease congestion'

Classic metal signs have been replaced by the new digital screens which can give drivers up to date parking information. The screens are able to direct motorists straight to car parks which have available spaces meaning motorists can reduce the time searching for an empty spot.

However, the council has already been forced to correct a typo on its new digital road signs.

A driver noticed the sign said ‘registry office’ when it should have said ‘register office’.

The council said the member of public was correct and confirmed the error would be amended as soon as possible.

However, the new road signs have been attacked by many motorists who claim the new signs are “dangerous”.

Tackling pothole issues was a popular alternative for many road users with many demanding better quality roads.

Another social media user warned the electronic signs could force drivers to take their eyes off the road.

They said: “So let’s all take our eyes off the road to read all the information on these signs.

“Hmm, sounds like a good idea when travelling at speed.”
