The Highways Agency has responded angrily to claims that variable message signs at the side of Britain’s motorways are ironic. The signs have been carrying messages such as: “Don’t allow distractions while driving”; “Keep your eyes on the road”; and “don’t put up signs at the side of the motorway”. After consulting a dictionary, a spokesman for the Highways Agency said that the signs were in actual fact “just a bit hypocritical”.

‘Caution: distracting sign’ would be ironic.
