“No Road Markings” Signs

No Road Markings SignWhat is the point?  Just in case anyone reading this doesn’t drive, I will just tell you; when one does, one must continually look at the road.  There are also minimum requirements for ones eyesight.  Nevertheless, if you can read the “No Road Markings” sign, surely you can see the road, and so see that there are no road markings, right?  Why do you need a sign to tell you this fact?

I mean, if we need a sign to tell us when there are no road markings, do we need a sign to tell us when they are there?

What frustrates me further is, when they finally do get around to painting the road markings back, they never seem to collect the “No Road Markings” signs back in!
