Misleading sign

In Hong Kong, so many road signs confuse motorists.

One prime example is the sign at North Point which is supposed to guide eastbound traffic on the Eastern Corridor to the right lane leading to Kornhill, so they do not go into the lane that takes them to the Eastern Harbour Crossing, or drive straight on to Chai Wan.

The sign is very high and the arrow indicates northwest, when it should be pointing northeast, towards the Kornhill lane.

I urge the Transport Department to sort out this problem before confused drivers cause an accident.
