On the Lookout: Funny Road Signs
Visitors to New York are probably confused about many of our street signs. There are alternate sign street parking signs, no standing signs, and no parking on school days signs (does this apply in summer? After private school lets out if the sign is near a private school or do you have to wait till NYC public schools are out?).
We like to look for funny traffic signs when we are traveling. In New York, we are unlikely to see a duck crossing or tractor crossing sign, both of which we’ve seen.
In London, a sign warms us the ‘Mind the Gap.” I really don’t mind it.
Other unusual road signs include turtle crossing and the grammatically incorrect Stop Men Working. Should we stop the men we see from working? Allow the women to continue working?
