I believe the message here is: “STOP your (bloody) car” [Image]

I am not sure how it works in other countries, but here in the United States we have something called ‘STOP’ signs. These signs are typically at intersections on roads that don’t have a stoplight. If you see one on your side of the road, you have to stop before proceeding further to make sure that no other cars (or people, bikes, etc.) are in the way.

If a cop sees you not stopping at a STOP sign, you are typically pulled over. Depending on the cop and the situation, when pulled over you may be able to worm your way out of a ticket by explaining why you didn’t stop, such as the sign was by a tree. I don’t think that type of excuse will fly in the following neighborhood. Check it out:

    @Anthony: Now I get it, the original sign is the one behind the trees. (Not the case here in Australia where we drive on the other side- correct side :) ha – of the road.)

    In my very small town we have a Y intersection where the traffic coming up a steep hill — mainly fully-loaded logging trucks — has right of way. At first glance it doesn’t look as though it should — you’d think that traffic coming straight through would prevail. The normal sized stop sign never worked, so we have this HUGE sign about 4-feet in diameter. And, man, tourists still manage to go through it and get wiped out !

    That has to be a $$$ neighborhood. I lived in FL for 40 years and some intersections could not even get one stop sign. That is taxpayers money at work!

    Well i think it’s better to put few more signs than cut the trees to make one sign visible…let it grow,let it grow :)

    So I have to stop 3 times to cross the intersection? Only in Florida.
