We see so many road signs that many drivers may be tempted to ignore them. But if you pay attention, there are some out there that are hilarious, or make no sense whatsoever.

We've compiled a gallery of some of the most amusing road signs we could find. Starting with this, a slightly frosty reception for visitors to the Cumbrian village of Allonby.

Please click on the photo above to see more funny road signs

Huh... At specific spots moose cross at 20 mph straight out of the woods, so the sign is VERY useful. One of them saved my life once... COllision with a moose does take off the top of your car, quite literally...

Driving on the I 10 through Arizona, we passed the State Penitentiary which was well signposted. It also had some signs which read ''Warning. Do NOT stop for hitch-hikers

There is a road sign which keeps getting knicked, so the council has refused to put up any more. The road? Sod Hall Lane!

 

By the way, I'm not going to tell you lot where it is or, if the council have replaced it, you lot might nick it again.

 

Another sign that I saw was at the end of a runway. The road sign? That of a duck. Now was it trying to warn drivers of ducks crossing the road or a graphic telling unwary drivers to duck when a plane  was landing/taking off?

St Hillary's sign is not against Sat Navs, it was intended to indicate that the road was not suitable for lorries, regardless of what the Sat Nav said. They were erected because the Sat Navs kept leading lorry drivers down country lane's in which they then got stuck.

 

One of the main roads in my village was blocked for three hours after a Polish lorry driver tried to take his HGV along it when following his Sat Nav.

You've got to love the Australian sense of humour!

Why is the sign for Blind school not in Braille? Why do drive through A.T.M. machines have Braille buttons?

we may find some of these signs strange. but they are quite usefull in other places.   i did almost kill a penguin once, if there hadnt of been a sign i would have.   but on the flip side, if holiday makers see these signs they spend the next 10 miles driving at 10 mph looking  for whatever was on the sign haha.   where i live now there is a road called "nowhere lane" :)

Oh, and I did like the ones they missed in County Kerry in Ireland for the Leprechaun Crossing and in Newquay in Cornwall for the Cornish Piskey Reserve

Why are ''Keep Left'' signs never ''Keep Right'' in countries which drive on the opposite side of the road to us Brits?
