Citizen complaint of the day: Enough with the damn arrows on street signs already

A disgusted citizen complains about the arrows on many Boston street signs, in this case on Centre Street in West Roxbury: These overhead signs are useless. The text is so narrow that you can't read any of it. What's with the arrows taking up so much room? Is that even standard? Never seen that in any other city. These signs along Centre St are distracting and should be taken down. Too many drivers are going dangerously slow through intersections trying to get close enough to read them.
