Cape Town - A motorist has tweeted the Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works, alerting the department to an incorrect road sign. 

Heinrich Hendricks asked the department if the '80km/m' sign was in error or if it was a new speed warning.

He stopped to take the pic on the R62 in Huisrivierpass, 40km out of Ladismith.

The department responded saying thanks and that they would "notify our Transport Management section and respond shortly".

Arrive Alive's Johan Jonck says: "We are pleased to find that the Department of Public Works has responded swiftly to the alert from the public. 

"Proper road audits need to ensure that these 'errors' do not endanger or confuse road users. We believe the important lesson from this should also be that every road user has a role to play in road safety."
