If it's that big an issue, there's a compass app for most phones.

In my opinion the new signs are only a SLIGHT improvement. The contrasting colors make them easier to read but the lettering is still too small. The size of the signs are OK but if they were going to bother putting up new signs, the letters should be bigger.

I love this.

The road signs on 466A are way too small. Hanging from the signals, they should be 3 times larger and also backlite for night.

TOTALLY agree - before spending the $$$, did they perform research and testing by REAL seniors driving. The new signs are indeed better but the lettering IS too small, for the signs we have seen.

...TOTALLY.

I was shocked to see how small the new letters are, especially after they obviously identified a problem with the original signs/lettering, are spending all that money...and still didn't get it correct.
