Travel Photo Thursday, Mar 24: Precautions When Driving!

After the hectic past week with Blog4NZ I need some light relief. Always thought these roadside signs in South Africa whilst amusing, carried a very serious message. I still chuckle though.




On Budget Travellers Sandbox, Nancie has a great shot taken from a mountain top just outside of Daejeon, Korea on a beautiful spring day in 2009. Take a look. Well worth it.

Love these signs!
I started doing a Sunday's Silly Sign on my blog and it get's enormous views. What I like best is not a lot of work needs to be done captioning them.

Cheers,
Mike

I saw similar signs in Malawi - sending a humorous message about an important topic. Thank you for making me smile.

Raymond said...

That is soooo funny! I really should start taking pictures of signs more often. I saw one recently in a sushi restaurant that said, "In case of emergency, remain clam." If only I had my camera....

Thanks for the chuckle!

Randy said...

That's great! Thanks, you just made my day.

I think that sometimes serious messages are best carried in amusing ways. They get people to pay attention. These signs are wonderfully amusing -- I hope they are effective!

Haha! I'm so jealous I haven't yet spotted anything like this in OZ!

I've also been enjoying your Blog4NZ posts although I haven't left comments. Hope your weekend is going great!

Jim, those photos are absolutely hilarious! Where in the world do you find things like that? Well, I guess I came across one today that is sort of a funny photo and will share next week. But...not nearly as funny, or effective, as this one:) Thanks for sharing!

Haha good one! ;) It's sad at the same time, that they have to work so hard on making people protect themselves.
