Unclear sign

Judging by the amount of tyre marks just on the exit from the services the road sign indicating M1 should also display M6. It seems people exiting the services looking to rejoin the motorway see the blue sign and follow it.

  • How can the Motorway Service Area management be responsible for the road signs? Did they decide what the sign should read?
