Where are the road signs?

It is not a surprise to all of us that our streets have been demolished by enemies of progress. Personally, I did not know that there was theft of traffic signs until I realised that some traffic signs were missing at some points. On Saturday I went strolling along the main roads in the city to witness the illegal activities taking place so that i can have evidence to back me when i talk about such crimes. Someone told me about the prowling of traffic lights but I didn’t believe it at all. One would ask why i am not knowledgeable of this crime when I always moved on the road.  Well, we all know the tough life in this country where someone wakes up thinking of how to survive.

Workers think of low salaries, which do not often come on time, and students think of the expensive bus fares they are charged when they go to school. Especially over long distances. All these made me too busy to notice what was going on in the city.

The road signs are placed in specific areas to ensure the safety of drivers. These signs enable the drivers to drive safely. The signs also shows the drivers when and where to turn.

In order to be a good driver, you need to have an understanding of what the signs on the roads mean. Road and traffic control signs are crucial and must be taken seriously even after the conclusion of your driving test. They are useful in the course of your entire driving experience.

Road signs are designed to make sure that every driver is kept safe. The street signs created long ago are to prevent all sorts of road accidents. The road signs help us navigate on the road, prevent crash and helps us reach our final destinations safely. They help to create order on the roads and are intended to provide essential information to drivers. Signs which are taken out of specific places or not visible as a result of wear and tear can pose undesirable risks to drivers. The municipalities and states are the ones in charge of installing and maintaining these signs for the safety of all drivers, cyclists, and the pedestrians.

When the signs were installed few years ago, people did not know how to use them. They could not follow the instructions correctly. Even when there is a Red Traffic light, they would still cross the road on a high speed, which increases the risk of road accidents.

Now some of our streets are very dark at night simply because the solar system does not function. Our citizens even fear moving at night because they fear the strangers who hide and lurk in the darkness.

if i may ask, Is it theft or witchcraft? Are these thieves or enemies of development? i believe they are not stealing because they are poor but because they do not want the good image of the country. If the city is disgraced this way will those who improved and developed it be happy? This is why sometime you can give someone a ready food but still complaints that there is no spoon. Can’t he just use his natural hand to eat?  Don’t we want to advance like other countries? If we crave for change then the police and the security units should patrol at night to monitor those who loiter and steal the traffic signs along the roads
