17 Funny Road Signs That’ll Surely Grab Your Attention
Estimated reading time: 3 minutes, 19 seconds. Contains 664 words
When you’re on the road, you’re going to pass hundreds of signs on your travels, all made to grab your attention. Many are to alert us of what’s ahead, some are to tell us how far some place is, and others are made to advertise the facilities in the area.
However, sometimes you pass some signs that are mind-boggling. Sometimes they’re signs that look awkwardly placed, sometimes the wording on them makes you wonder how the person who made them could not see such a blatant mistake. Others, they’re just so strange that you start to wonder if they were done on purpose. Either way, here is a list of the strangest signs you may find on the road network.
If you hit this sign, you will hit that bridge
An eye-grabbing warning that’ll likely grab the attention of unfortunate lorry drivers. However, it’s a rather bizarre way of warning the driver of the hazard ahead. At least the lack of dent marks on the sign gives us assurance that no unfortunate driver has hit the bridge yet.
2. Jioning Traffic Not Signal Controlled
Not only was this sign typed out and printed, but someone placed it by the road, and at no point did anybody seem to think, “Maybe we should check the spelling!”
3. Elderly People Crossing
An example of how you should think twice before placing your signs. They may end up looking unironically grim.

4. Sign Not In Use
We’re not sure of the reason such a sign needed to be put up. Maybe it’s a placeholder for another sign that will be put in place? Maybe it’s trying to tell us that the sign above it is no longer in use (but if that’s the case, why not just remove it?)
5. Translation Errors
Apparently the designers for this sign emailed the Swansea council for the Welsh translation required for this sign, and thought they got what they asked for. However, Welsh speakers were quick to point out that it actually said, “I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated.” Oops!
6. Forbidden Access
You hear that? No vechiles allowed!
7. The Secret Nuclear Bunker
Shh! Don’t tell anyone!
8. Humped Zebra Crossing
We tried to look for a zebra here who might be walking awkwardly, but couldn’t find anything!
9. Which Choice To Take?
Exit or education, which one should you pick?
10. Snoring Airfield
Ssh! Don’t wake it up!
11. I Beg Your Pardon??
12. Universe Closed
When the universe is closed, take the rainbow instead!
13. Enclosure Issues
Well, they’re not wrong. It’s certainly not shark-proof!
14. Get Out Of Here Fast
If you want to make sure your car doesn’t get crushed and melted, you’d better make sure you get your food within 10 minutes!
15. A Street To Avoid
…. I’ll avoid using my smartphone on this street!
No? No what?
17. Dead End
A dead end to Cemetery Street, very ironic!
