Chinese leaders of late have been talking about promoting Chinese culture.  The best way to promote Chinese culture is to make Chinese signs understood by the thousands of foreigners living and working in China,  and the thousands more who flock here to visit.  Currently,  most public signs are written in Chinese without hanyu pinyin, and the few which have hanyu pinyin unfortunately don't have the tone indicators, making them meaningless!  Foreigners rely on hanyu pinyin with the tone indicators to help them understand what is written.
It is hoped that the relevant authorities would put their heads together and come up a regulation requiring all public signs, be they from private or government organisations,  commercial advertisements, and shopfront signs, to have hanyu pinyin with tone indicators!  This is the essential first step to promoting Chinese culture to foreigners.

Just use your smartphone and a visual translation app to translate the characters for you. Baidu Translate has a camera icon for that function.
