It’s travel season and our readers have not only been clocking plenty of miles but also snapping pics of some Wild, Weird and Wacky Street Signs – then sending them in to share with TheDetroitBureau.com.
For those who’ve somehow missed the news, we’re running a contest asking readers to share the crazy street signs they’ve spotted across the country and around the world. The good news is that you’ve still got plenty of time to enter.
The contest runs through August 17 and we’ll then ask readers to help us judge the best, with winners announced over the Labor Day holiday. To add some motivation, prizes include a $500 Bridgestone tire gift certificate.
In the meantime, here are some of the most recent entries in TheDetroitBureau.com’s Wild, Weird and Wacky Street Signs Contest!
We can understand why reader C. Logenreich might have turned back after spotting the dire warning (at top) when turning onto Oregon’s Bear Camp Road. We probably would’ve gone looking for the nearest Interstate, as well.
But we have no idea what to make of this sign that popped up in Mt. Vernon, NY, submitted by Martha Mullin. By the time that asteroid crossed the road, we figure, it’d probably be too late for anyone to care.
A large portion of the wacky signs we’ve received are meant to warn of danger ahead. But not all.
We always appreciate the British. They have a way of being impeccably polite, as David Harrison discovered during a trip to England a while back. He spotted this advisory when trying to park next to a local pub.
As our readers have repeatedly shown, some signs seem just so unnecessary, like one we previously posted advising “Water on Road When It Rains.” But who in the local street department really thinks we needed this warning at the end of the pavement? This sign submitted by J. Schantzen and taken in North Merritt Island, Florida.
On the other hand, it appears the local road crew just got tired of helping out in the middle of Washington State, as this pic from Mike Little demonstrates.
Finally, we wondered whether Dante had decided to enter the contest when we received this image. But, no, it was snapped by Marie Meeks at Niagara Falls State Park. Who knew?
