A sign erected pointing motorists to an alternate route to prevent congestion is causing traffic problems of its own.

The sign, put up by police on Soi Chaiyapornwitee 15 was placed in such a way that it blocks the view of drivers trying to use the intersection.

Nongprue public works boss Thongchai Kamlangthai said the sub-district plans to move the sign away from its current place in front of a Family Mart.

Ironically, the sign causing traffic problems was put up to avoid traffic problems. It tells motorists to avoid congestion on Chiayapornvitee and Route 3240 by taking the Motorway 7 access road instead during rush hours. But the sign actually caused more congestion than it solved.
