Public signs to be user-friendly for older folk
Design standards next year to ensure better readability, such as larger fonts
MR PETER Ng, a 67-year-old retiree, could not locate public toilets on a few occasions as he was having trouble reading the signs.
Said Mr Ng: "Many elderly Singaporeans wear glasses. It would help if the words on signs are bigger.
"Sometimes, those who design the signs try too hard to make them look unique, but they don't convey the message well. Signs should be functional."
But Mr Ng may no longer face this problem in future.
