Direction and Distance Arrows
 allows ratings
Description:
This category contains direction and distance markers -- signs with multiple physical "arrows" (think of a small slat with a name and arrow painted on it), each pointing to a separate location (with the distance to that location indicated).

Note that this category is intended to include only signs that point to distant places.
Expanded Description:
If you happen across a sign outdoors, accessible to the public, with multiple "arrows", each pointing to a different location, that sign may be a candidate for this category.

Note that each "arrow" should be a separate small sign -- in other words, it should be something like a slat (small board) with a location name and a distance. That slat should be affixed to a post, and should point in the general direction of the location whose name is on the slat.
