Default The Top 25 Most Ridiculous Road Signs




Quote:
Though some people aren’t fans of signs, the fact of the matter is they’re needed to maintain an orderly (or something loosely resembling it) modern society. This is particularly true on the road, where signs are used to keep motorists, cyclists and pedestrians alike safe and informed.

Of course, some street signs are more straightforward and sensible than others. Occasionally, you come across a sign that just makes you wonder if a single human being bothered to look at it at any point during the design, printing and installation process. Here are 25 that we feel fit that description.


Here be dragons!





I don’t think planes BOUNCE off cars…





Animal molestation is baaaad





Me, I want a hula hoop





Dr. Seuss’ first job? Sign-maker





Hey kids! It’s Colin the Friendly Coffin!





MOOOOOOOOOOOOO…SPLAT!





Heh heh…boobs…





Paging George Romero…

It's a good thing most people don't know how airplanes are built. Nobody would ever fly anywhere.

Hint: an average small plane would definitely bounce off an average car.

And that steep grade sign is just turned 90 degrees

That sign actually means watch out for the tow rope. It would be placed near the end of a runway that seeing gliding operations. When a tow plane comes into land after hauling a glider up to release height that rope drags across the ground just prior to landing. There is a nice big steel ring on that end of that rope that will take out car windows very easily.

Like this.

That last one(hukkumis vaara virtaava vesi) in the first post translates to "Drowning danger, strong currents" if that helps .
