Unclear signage a safety hazard

I’M sure many road users like me have faced the frustrating problem of dirty and poorly maintained road signs on our highways and city roads. These grimy signs present a tableau of neglect at night, with letters struggling to emerge from the grime

I believe that the Malaysian Highway Authority is critical in approving highway signage, while the Public Works Depart-ment handles public roads, and local authorities manage city or district area signage. It is imperative that these authorities regularly check and ensure that signs they are responsible for are legible enough to read from a distance, especially at night.
