In Germany, the US and Canada, every street name is clearly and prominently displayed in a consistent manner. Here, if shown at all, it may be 30ft up on the wall of a building, or low down and round the corner so that it cannot be seen until you have passed the corner.
Perhaps the Independent could sponsor a competition for the design of a piece of street furniture to show street names that could be adopted by all local authorities. This might shame the Government into framing some simple legislation to enforce its use.
