When you’re travelling on the road, there are the regular traffic signs and warnings. Typical sign include
- Don’t Pass
- Children Crossing
However when you’re faced with the following signs, I typically have to stop and actually figure out what the hell the sign means …if just for a second or two.
Some signs are pretty self explanatory like this sign in Helsinki, Finland
Other signs are self explanatory … maybe a bit severe but they at least convey the point, that they’re not joking, like this sign in Antigua, Guatemala.
Some signs are pretty self explanatory, but then you wonder why does the fact need explaining? For instance, does this place in Santa Ana, El Salvador really need two signs to say this?
Then there are some signs that completely missed the point of actually being a sign … like this one in Gulfoss, Iceland.
This one asking me to yield for Goats? Sheep? Fat dogs with horns? is yet another gem from Reykjavik, Iceland
One of my all time classic signs though, has to be this gem from just outside the Panama Canal. The combination of No Parking with Yielding for Big Assed pedestrians? Like really? This sign would actually cause me to run over someone. I don’t know why the sign has to have an extremely over emphasized rear end?
If you’re reading this and have an example of a funny sign, I’d love to see it and feature it on a future post!
