Road Signs

THIEVES TARGET BOROUGH COUNCIL ROAD SIGNS...

Thieves have been indiscriminately targeting road signs, removing poles and signs using metal cutting equipment.

 

A number of signs have been unlawfully removed, some of which were discovered discreetly left in a field, presumably for collection by the thieves to be sold later as scrap.

 

In addition to the obvious safety implications for road users of missing road signs, their removal can also leave dangerous holes in the pavement where the posts used to be.

 

Mayor Dave Hodgson said: “Road signs are there for a reason; to keep people safe. This kind of theft puts lives at risk and displays an utter disregard for the safety of others. We ask the public to be vigilant and call the Police immediately if they see anything suspicious.”

 

If you witness a road sign theft, please contact Bedfordshire Police on 01234 841212. Residents who wish to report any obsolete road signage or other street furniture are asked to contact the Council on 01234 718003 or to email the Highways Helpdesk via highways.helpdesk@bedford.gov.uk
