Signs have Scottish drivers seeing double

ABERDEEN, Scotland, April 2 (UPI) -- A Scottish road management company said a sign's placement 20 feet from an identical sign wasn't a mistake.

Bear Scotland said the road sign on A90 southbound in Aberdeen, which gives the distances to various locations, was put up 20 feet from an identical sign ahead of the older sign being replaced, The Daily Mirror, Britain, reported Tuesday.

"A new sign has been put up to accommodate new signage for a U-turn ban and junction warning signs," a Bear Scotland spokeswoman said. "The existing sign that was there originally will be moved in the next fortnight."

"The whole idea is to have two signs so that no information is lost for the motorists while the move takes place," she said. "It is normal to put the new sign up before the old one is taken down."
