Targeting what? The mysteries of a road sign revealed
Updated, June 21: THE gremlins are back. The electronic sign on the Tweed Valley Way which has been unreadable for much of the time it has been in place at the roadside is again displaying a scrambled message.
The sign was fixed on Wednesday afternoon after Mydailynews.com.au alerted Roads and Maritime Services about the fault, but the legible message did not last long. The sign is again displaying a weird assortment of letters with no decipherable message.
Initial report, June 20: IF you have been trying to crack the code of a Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) sign located on the Tweed Valley Way, wonder no longer.
The portable electronic sign has been on display at the roadside on the outskirts of Murwillumbah for the past two weeks, but has been unreadable for much of that time.
In fact, the only words legible on the sign were "targeted," leaving many passers-by wondering, "Targeting what?"
Well, we can now reveal police are targeting drink drivers, speeding drivers and drivers not wearing a seatbelts, according to RMS.
Mydailynews.com.au contacted the RMS yesterday morning to ask about the sign and by 5.30pm it had been fixed to read, "Targeting seat beats."
