the signal

I hope that my province goverment think that is a waste of time and money put to much signals in the road. They only put few signals telling you all about the road, like a resume.-



The signal says: Mr. driver: Drive with prudence, zones of curves and hard slopes. precaution!

I don't know why they don't put at the end: No desespere (take it easy)

That's brilliant! I'd like to see a 'Mr. Driver: Drive With Prudence.' sign on every road in this country.

While on Christmas vacation in Kentucky, I saw a great sign on the highway. It was designed with a sense of humor and to get the attention of the driver to slow down in an area where there was road construction going on. It said:


Whoa there! Save the racin' for the horses!

They installed an electronic sign here on the Gold Coast a while ago that flashed up a "watch your speed" message every time someone drove past at more than the speed limit. It ended up like a permanent display whenever there was any traffic around. It's now been removed. I think they deemed it a complete failure.
