Some on-ramp signage is either confusing, badly located or too close to the turn. Instead of paying a bunch of money to "study" this, ask the community to notify the responsible department and publicize the request widely. Many would respond. Keep a talley. I can think of several that would be confusing to tourists, drunks and visually impaired in some circumstances just off the top of my head.

Cal Trans really needs to figure some way to stop the wrong-ways, BEFORE they even get on...the wrong side. Maybe, some kind of alarm warning system, geared for cars / vehicles going the wrong way.
