Christmas road signs were free – Infrastructure Malta

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Infrastructure Malta (IM) has not been asked to pay for the Christmas road signs that were put up in December.

A spokesperson for the company told Newsbook.com.mt that the road signs put up to celebrate the festive spirit were put up in areas of low speed limits.

Newsbook.com.mt asked the spokesperson whether they think that such signs could distract drivers. He explained that the areas in which they were put up were chosen specifically so as not to confuse any travellers using different means of transport.

He said that since the signs were put up temporarily, for only a month, and since they can be reused in the future by replacing the signs, IM was not asked to pay for the signs.

IM put up photos of these road signs on Facebook, which elicited different reactions.

One person stated that road signs are there to provide relevant information, not as a gimmick. He said that he had to double check the meaning of the sign the first time he saw one, which meant that he had to take his eyes off the road.

Another however commented that everyone should cheer up, and that they loved them.
