"The thoughtless sign has confused many road users.
"It should be taken off as soon as possible, before an accident occurs," Loo said.
Meanwhile, on the concrete slab road divider along the busy Jalan Tanjung Bungah, a U-turn sign has been put up -- upside down.
S. Marimuthu, 36, said the glaring mistake must be rectified without further delay.
"The reputation of the Penang Island Muncipal Council is at stake so it is in their best interests to remove the upside-down U-turn sign," he said.
MPPP councillor Teh Lai Heng, who is a member of the Infrastructure and Traffic Management Committee, said the traffic signs were not under the jurisdiction of MPPP but under the the Public Works Department's (JKR).
Teh, who took note of the complaints, thanked Streets for highlighting the matter.
"I will forward the complaints to JKR for remedial action," Teh said
