With everyone staying home and doing less traveling these days, virtual vacations are becoming more popular. When I travel I always look at signs and license plates. Road trips can offer lots of time and opportunity to see all sorts of interesting things. Let's take a virtual road trip across the country and check out some absolutely hilarious signs. What are you waiting for? Come on!
First stop, Colorado. I don't remember covering this in the driver's education handbook. I think I'd call it safe and go the .5 miles per hour under the speed limit here. Who decides the speeds for Highlands Ranch, Colorado anyhow? I think we need to reevaluate these two. Don't you?
At approximately 3 pounds each, I'd imagine having a coconut dropping on your head could really do some damage. As dangerous as this could potentially be, I've got to say, this is pretty funny! Beware of falling coconuts next time you're in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Apparently, after rains, the hillside slopes near Hot Springs, California have a tendency to get pretty slick. When this happens the free-range cows that live there have been known to fall from above a few times. Enough times in fact, that the need to warn drivers of the possible risk of cows falling from above resulted in this legit sign. Don't believe me, check it out for yourself at the intersection of SR-178 and Old Kern Canyon Road.
Okay for all of you believers out there, don't get too offended, but I think this warning sign is a bit out there ...if you know what I mean. I imagine hitting a Sasquatch while driving through the Oregon Wilderness could really do some major damage to your vehicle. Try explaining that one to the insurance company!
I'm guessing with this next sign, Griffin, Georgia must have gotten tired of making repairs to this bridge. Actually, come to think of it, this isn't a bad idea! Seriously, why don't all bridges have a "must be below this height" sign to test out before going under the actual bridge?! It's like the "must be this tall to ride" signs at the fair. This one is ingenious if you ask me.
Umm, just no! NO! NO! NO! Alright Boston, Massachusetts what were you thinking here? Can someone please explain this jumble of signs to me. I don't even know where to begin. I'm sure GPS loves this intersection. Something tells me "turn around" and "recalculating" are to be expected here. Good luck if driving through this area.
