Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign. Fun With Signs. Part 1: Road Signs.

Whether I travel the world or simply walk near where I am based in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area, I notice signs. Metal signs. Illuminated signs. Signs, cosigns and tangents.

That tangent I took may be a sign that you may already get where I am going with this article — so resign yourself to some awkward humor even though you did not cosign up for it.

This new series of articles will feature five photographs of various signs which were spotted during my travels around the world — and for this inaugural edition, highway signs in the United States are being featured.

Does this sign discriminate against heavy pedestrians because they are blatantly being called out publicly — or does it discriminate against pedestrians who are not heavy because the walkway is apparently not for them?

One other thing: why does the graphic at the bottom of the sign look like a bunch of stick figures walking on a horizontal ladder with rungs which are unevenly spaced?

At least the word pedestrian is spelled correctly — unlike on the road sign which is featured in this article and in this article

This sign discriminates against slow children who happen to be playing — but I would certainly not be see-sawing about watching neighborhood crime.

So let me see if I have this straight: schools cannot travel any faster than 35 miles per hour — and they must be temporarily naked while doing so?

I personally would rather not throw trash on the highway — but if paying me up to $1,000.00 to throw trash on the highway is fine with you, then it is fine with me…

…or perhaps you like the way I throw things — to the point where you call it “fine throwing” and will pay me up to $1,000.00?

However, if you want for me to throw $1,000.00 on the highway as trash, that is not fine with me.

Okay, so I understand that the right lane MUST turn right — but what about the vehicles which are traveling in the right lane? Must they go the extra 6 miles and turn right as well?


Please also be sure to read this article pertaining to photographs of unique highway signs in Colorado — with complete sentences.

If you want to join in on the fun, please feel free to conjure your own interpretations of the signs which are featured in this article and post them in the Comments section below, as I enjoy when you do that.

    I always enjoy “slow children” signs but the best are the signs the parents buy at the store and set up in the street in front other their own house instead of parenting. I also don’t know if kids on a see-saw would be a danger to motorists unless they are doing so in the street.

    The biggest problem with all these signs is that we have sign pollution. People don’t even pay attention to most signs anymore because there are so many of them. Many are for little to no reason.

    I would have never noticed those heavy pedestrians had there not been a flashing amber beacon.
