Do They Really Need To Tell Me That?

I've noticed that there seems to be a large number of what I would consider unnecessary information signs on the roads in the UK. I've lost count of the number of times I've been sat in a traffic jam, barely moved for half an hour only to have the overhead signs warning me of a traffic queue and that the speed limit is now 40 miles per hour. If only!! Then there's the overhead signs that proclaim 'Fog' which are barely visible thanks to, yes you've guessed it, the fog! But now there's a new kid on the block which has been popping up seemingly wherever I go. "Check Your Fuel Level". Really?? I've been driving for over 40 years and I really wish those signs had appeared many years ago. They've been a revelation. I now make sure I have adequate fuel in the car whenever I go on a journey and, if I haven't, I put some in. It certainly beats my previous modus operandi of just driving until I run out of fuel and phoning someone to bring me some to the roadside!!
