Synopsis of the winning entry:
The Exit Number System on highways, launched in 2003, was supposed to facilitate drivers in their route selection. But drivers have found that the additional information confuses, rather than simplifies. Experts say conveying too much information on the signs may actually lead to chaos and could lead to traffic accidents. In the wake of its 15th anniversary, this story revisits the Exit Number System and examines its overall effectiveness.

作品介紹:現時本港快速公路的路牌上面,都有不同的資訊。但駕駛人士又是否都看得懂呢?政府在2003年重新編配幹線編號的時候,同時在路牌上面,新增出口編號系統。但早前有報道指,新增的出口編號引致混亂,令駕駛人士未能前往目的地。有專家指,現時公路路牌資訊混亂,會是導致交通意外的其中一個成因。而整個系統已經推出超過15年,成效又是怎樣呢?
