Road sign is a cause of road accident
The road sign is very important for smooth driving on the highway. As highway is the busiest route of a country and vehicle are very speedy on a highway, there needs clear direction to move. And it is true that highway is the lifeline of a country. For a better economic growth, highway, over the country, is one of the preconditions. So, for a better movement of the vehicle on the highway, we must ensured proper road sign everywhere on the national and regional highways. According to bus and truck drivers, lack of proper road sign is one of the common causes of the road accident. Spicily at night, rainy day and foggy day the drivers cannot see the road sign properly. Speed breaker is one of the culprits that make many accidents as most of the time there is no sign. From a long distance, the driver cannot see the speed breaker because after some days of road construction the white colour disappears from the road. So, I request to the authority to pay more attention on the road sign to reduce road accident.
