Is Auckland A Failed State?

After driving down Great North Road in Auckland yesterday I realised the signage system is even worse than I had already noted. It is a bloody disaster, or, it’s like a disaster has occurred and the damage never repaired. Is Auckland a failed state? What is going on in this city???

I was directed at least three times off Great North Road by the flow of the traffic, the direction of the road and the dreadful signposting (if it existed at all). Halfway through the signs all changed colour and moved to the other side of the road. Further along the street numbers dropped down from the 4,000s to the 300s. Weird.

There’s so many issues with the signs and roads in this city I could start a website on it and never run out of content – this I think I might do (perhaps www.aucklandstreetsignssuck.com). I don’t want to clutter up TheDUDE with all this CRAP.
