A DYSLEXIC councillor said plans to introduce dual-language road signs in Cornwall could be dangerous for people who have difficulty reading.
Conservative Councillor Tom French asked Councillor Bert Biscoe, Cornwall Council Cabinet member for transport, whether the issue had been taken into consideration in discussions around dual-language signage.
When Cornish was designated a national minority there were calls for dual-language road signs to be introduced to promote the Cornish language.
Dual language road signs are already used in Wales and it was felt something similar could be introduced in Cornwall.
A previous question to Cornwall Council regarding the cost of the signs suggested they would only be introduced when current road signs needed to be replaced.
Street signs across Cornwall are already being introduced in dual-language when they need to be replaced or repaired.
Mr French said at the council meeting: "Along with many others, I have dyslexia, which means I do assimilate written words more slowly than some.
I therefore ask if reading-difficulty has been looked at when considering making road signs in both Cornish and English." He added: "If as a consequence of trying to read road signs one hesitates or gets confused it could surely lead to accidents?"
Mr Biscoe said: "Any proposal to change the language and format of signing would need to be given careful consideration and the appropriate approval from the Department for Transport.
"The legibility and safety implications of any proposed change would be considered as part of the approval process."
