These are so funny ! My son and I just laughed our hearts out as we read them !
Road signs can be seen in any city we visit. Some of them can be quite unusual, unique or amusing to the visitors. Below are some of the traffic signs that I have found. I do doubt its existence, but they are claimed to be photographed by people who encountered them as they visited the country. So, throw away the thought of questioning the logical existence of these sign boards for just this one time, and have a good laugh.
Yes, those are bullet holes on the sign board.
This is a good one.
To enter or not to enter, that's the question.
History of Traffic Signs
Traffic sign or road signs started with milestones, made with stones or wood, intending to provide information on distance or direction. The earliest milestone dated back to Roman Empire where erected stone columns were built throughout their empire to provide distance to Rome. In the Middle Ages, multidirectional signs at intersections gradually emerged, giving directions to various cities and towns.
As the automobile industry developed, traffic signs existence became a vital necessity. In 1908 International Road Congress held in Rome, the basic patterns of most traffic signs were formed. Since then, modification followed to suit various culture and countries requirement. Today, all the traffic signs are made of metal instead of wood. They are coated with various types of retro-reflective sheeting to reflects light back to its source for nighttime and low-light visibility.

Absolutely no chance for escape !

Unique Traffic Signs in Australia
Some countries have unique road signs that are not found in other countries. For example, Australia and probably Papua New Guinea are the only country in the world with road signs depicts animals like kangaroo and koala bear. These road signs are meant to alert the drivers just in case these animals suddenly jump out to cross the road. Kangaroos come out to look for good at dawn and right before sunset. So if you are driving at these hours, watch out for kangaroo!
Such car accidents (hitting kangaroo) are actually very common in Australia. The adult kangaroos can grow as tall as 3 to 9 feet (0.9m to 2.7m) tall, and weigh 40 to 200 lbs (18 to 95kg). Therefore, not only the animal can get killed or injured by the car accident, the car can suffer serious damage, and you may need to pay hefty for the car repair. So, reduced speeds and high alertness are definitely wiser things to do while driving in such kangaroo and wildlife hotspots.
