Wrong route signage

From the m1 at jnc 24 and possibly further away the signage is reporting A5 South closed at M42 and as you leave M1 at 23A the signage changes no not to the terrible English safe area one which is actually back to front and should read incase of breakdown use safety area. It does fit I counted it least you know how to spell minimise. Off topic so as you go down the A42 the signage just says A5 South closed all the way to jnc 10 and guess what the A5 is actually shut at atherstone and by all accounts the last time I checked the world I'd say it is actually running east I only say that I know it runs north south but its yourselves that have invented the A5 west diversion when it should possibly say north anyway due to a couple of extremely busy companies in the said area and the companies are high capacity time critical companies wouldn't it be less confusing to say A5 closed S/B atherstone that way you won't flood the surrounding villages with lgv traffic causing massive headaches and loss to the companies in question its ridiculous and I'm sure it's damn unsafe practice too.
