Unusual Signs
Managed By: Icon Here Spell Checkers.
Description:
The idea of this category is to find and mark incorrect or confusing official signs. They can be printed or pictorial signs that have corrupted the English or any other language (please include English translation and explanation) or are just plain confusing. These would also include funny or misdirected road or directional signs. Upside down is also accepted if it is clearly a permanent orientation and not the temporary influence of attachment failure or storm damage.

Unusual  SignsUpside down toilet sign Nordby - Nordby, Denmark

in Unusual Signs

I Nordby havde man brug for et skilt, hvor pilen pegede til højre, men i mangel af bedre valgte man at vende skiltet med WC og pilen pegende til venstre på hovedet. Så let løser man det :-)

This sign is unusual in that it does not show a speed limit for the DAY- only "Reasonable and Prudent". In my travels I have never seen a speed sign without a number.
