Speed restriction signs wrong way round

Reported via Android in the Sign problem category anonymously at 14:03, Wed 29 November 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5265251.

There are two signs here - on going into the village should read 40mph, the other one going out of the village and up the hill should be the national speed limit sign. Someone has turned the signs around 180 degrees making it dangerous: The signs now suggest that you should go up the hill at 40mph - but driving into the village 60mph would be OK. This is dangerous for the village - and a driver causing an accident could claim that the signs are to blame.
