Parking sign redesign aims to make life easier
Fed up with confusing parking signs? So is New Yorker Nicole Sylianteng, so she's set about designing a parking sign that is far less complicated to understand.
The concept uses colour-coded green and red blocks to explain when you can and can't park, totally eliminating small print. She then laminates the new designs and sticks them up under the official ones...

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.
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" :)
