Driving instructors say road signs and markings in Geneva aren’t good enough

Driving instructors in Geneva say road signs and markings in the city aren't good enough.

They've taken their case to the Department of Transport with over twenty examples of confusing or insufficient signage. 

Geneva driving instructor, Fernand Margot, told 20 minutes that whilst they teach their students the correct rules, in practice they always confront illegal situations.

He says some parking spaces no longer fit today's cars, pedestrian crossings which shouldn't be in certain speed zones, motorists not being warned about one way streets and a lacks of signs indicating the end of a 30 zone.

State councillor Luc Barthassat, says they are in touch with the instructors and hope to have a solution by the end of the year.
