Default North/South signage

Is there any reason that there are no indications on Morse or BV to indicate North and South. It seems it would be really helpful to know which direction is which at the roundabouts and a sign posted on the 2 sides of the roundabout circle could easily be installed. Then a driver who is new or one who is "turned around" or directionally challenged, could more easily negotiate the roundabout choose the appropriate exit. Are there others who have to think twice about which exit to use when they get to a roundabout on Morse or BV?

Similar tunnel signs would also be useful as would bigger print, particularly as we age. It seems easy to get turned around when using the tunnels that cross Morse and BV. JMHO

I agree. When I was new here I went the wrong way on Morse a few times.

That's the point after you are here awhile you then know which way is North.
Visitors will have trouble with roundabouts with or without signs.
Can't have a sign for everything!

Default Maybe signs similar to this one too...

...just replace the pointers with names of the Villages!

When they did the initial studies on signs in tunnels the results were overwhelming, people either did not see them or did not read them. This first failed attempt has probably ended future signage in tunnels. The first experiment was a simple sign that said STOP.

Skyguy, you are the king of timely images, bravo!
