There's a brand new exit sign northbound on Hwy 99 where the designer forgot to center some of the text, so one of the words is off on the left edge, while the rest is centered. These mistakes would be caught by any sort of review process. Clearly there is no competent oversight at all.
You got that right. In most of Europe, the highway signage is big, clear, and comes with big graphic direction panels. The ones in BC are small, often hard to notice, and often malplaced. A study trip to Europe by responsibles for the BC Highways signage department wouldn't hurt any, that's for sure.
