Sign denoting roadworks is in the middle of a very narrow pavement and cannot be seen in the dark in an ultra low light zone, which our village is. Sustained injury to face, almost knocking out front teeth. Sign hit with such force it hit the ground, despite being weighed down with a sandbag or equivalent. Extremely dangerous.
