3-2-1 markers do no harm. They do a fair bit of good. They areMore like a deterioration of driving standards when you can't find a
supposed to be there. It is a deterioration of standards when they
sliproad that you are expecting just because three lumps of aluminium
I disagree. If the 3-2-1 signs are normally present but aren't at a given
junction, then you will think that you are further away than you thought
on the grounds that "I still haven't seen any of the 3-2-1 signs yet". It
will lead to confusion: "I thought that was the half-mile sign back there.
Must have been the one-mile sign - the junction must be a bit further
Once you make something a standard, any departure from the standard is
bound to be confusing, even if there are other indications such as the
change to green cats-eyes as the sliproad starts.
I wish they'd make 3-2-1 signs compulsory on all roads (not just
motorways) wherever the speed limit is reduced by more than 10 mph. It
makes it so much easier to judge where to begin slowing down so as to just
nicely reach a 40 or 30 limit by the time you arrive at the sign, ideally
without having brake at all if you lift off the power at the right time.
At the locations wherre the countdown markers are missing, have the
directions signs by the sliproad also been removed?
