You call that a pun, Tourism Australia? Now here's a groaning campaign idea

  You call that a pun, Tourism Australia? Now here's a groaning campaign idea If Australia must keep resorting to tired cliches to sell itself, why not go the whole hog?Ever since Paul Hogan’s “shrimp on the barbie” campaign put us on the map, we've been reaching for ever-more cliched images to spruik our natural attractions and laidback lifestyle.

Traffic signs or road signs are signs erected at the side of or above roads to give instructions or provide information to road users. The earliest signs were simple wooden or stone milestones.

Every single one of the road signs comes directly from the official WA DOL driver’s handbook so it will be just as if you’re sitting for the actual test when you take this practice test. When you drive around the roads in WA , you come across various signs , and most of them are part of this practice test.

Multilingual signs will be trialled on some popular tourist roads in Western Australia in a bid to keep international travellers safe.

Signs with directional arrows and "keep left" written in German, French and Mandarin will first be installed at Indian Ocean Drive, where there have been several deadly head-on crashes.

Directional arrows will also be painted intermittently on the road surface to remind drivers to keep left in Australia.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said crash data from 2014 to 2018 showed international drivers were 35 per cent more likely to be involved in head-on crashes, particularly if they usually drive on the right hand side of the road.

Other routes to receive the signs will be Minilya-Exmouth Road, Northampton-Kalbarri Road and Burkett Road.

Planning is also underway to consider the cost and suitability of installing the signs at Brookton Highway and Caves Road.

So which one is it? Motorists are left baffled by busy Sydney road with THREE different speed limits .
The Alexandria street, in the city's inner suburbs, has a limit of 60km/hr clearly painted in white on the road, a red light speed camera warning marked 50 and a roadwork signing reading 40.The three-lane Alexandria street, in the city's inner suburbs, has a limit of 60km/hr clearly painted in white on the road.
