Signs, Signs - Everywhere

Contributed by Norm Nyhuis, Trainer, Evergreen Safety Council
Highway signs. Sometimes there just are none when you need them most. I have determined the number of useful highway signs is inversely proportional to the degree to which I am lost – but that’s another story. Someone, in some highway department somewhere has the unenviable job of thinking-up the wording to use on a sign. It must not be too “wordy’ as there is a limited amount of space, it has to be succinct and convey the message accurately. After doing this job, for who knows how long, it appears the person needs a vacation, a nice, long vacation . . . I offer the following signs as evidence:
Gotta’ watch those slippery pedestrians!

Maybe this is why the pedestrians are so slippery?

I’d say this one wins the “Truth in Advertising” award

Too much information!

Pay attention to the signs when you are driving, and if you see one that should be added to our collection, send it to us, and we’ll share it on our web site.
