Limit the functions of the Highway Agency to common sense levels
Abolish Highways Agency Traffic Officers, their excessive 4×4 cars and associated equipment. Also restrict the number matrix signs to the level required for accurate and timely information that reflect the actual danger and not to give useless, inaccurate or inappropriate information that is obvious and insults intelligence.
Why does this idea matter?
Traffic Officers are a waste money serving no function and seem to actually provide services in relation to incident management that are provided by other departments or agencies. The matrix signs actually cause a danger to road users when they provide inaccurate and inappropriate information as they distract drivers. We did not have Traffic Officers years ago and the roads don't appear to be any safer or there to be any accident reduction as a result. No benefit is apparent.
