Too much useless information

Reported by Michael Chartres at 15:15, Wed 7 July 2021

The information boards on motorways provide useless information. They state how many minutes to a particular junction. Surely that depends on how fast you are driving and many people don't know the Junction Numbers. There are enough distractions without having to wonder what that means to you. Far better would be simply "CLEAR FOR THE NEXT XX MILES" Or "XX MINUTE DELAY XX MILES AHEAD" Simple, clear and everyone can understand.
