To this day, I cannot figure out why Woundcare is one word on one side and two on the other.

Here are a few silly road signs:

1. Gate No. 16 at Sydney Airport is indeed straight ahead, but you can only turn left at this intersection (Foreshore Rd and General Holmes Drive southbound on/offramps):

I would guess it's for the benefit of the Police/Fire Brigade/Ambulance/other Emergency Services who wouldn't let the little matter of lane markings, left turn only signs and other regulatory signs bother them too much.

It probably is just something they've left behind from before the intersection was converted to left turn only. There are very tall metal poles in the median so you can't go straight.

I don't want to see this thread be closed, but I am posting exactly what the thread title expects
There's a bin sign here, yet there are no bins nearby
Image
If you read 'disable' as a verb, the signs seem to be a command, rather than a direction
ImageImage
Sign instructions not being followed

There's no longer an exit here at Helensburgh, since the stairs have been relocated

Glandfield

These signs remain at Wingello, a decade later

The ticket machine has since been removed, however this sign remains there:

And it requests one to see 'staff' for toilet access:

A few years ago, I visited Ipswich. Wish I'd had a camera at the time: there were posters including

Perhaps that's because everybody has a different sense of humour?

AEC Decker snapped this sign at the Liverpool model railway exhibition LAST year and forgot to post it. :oops:

Funny enough, the same sign was missing this year. :shock: 8)

Not a sign as such, but someone has posted this on to a newspaper comment.

“Perhaps the photo caption should have read
"NSW Premier Mike Baird, and OTHER Murdoch exployees ........."”

How true!

Saw one last year at Dufan (amusement park near Jakarta, Indonesia) on a flume ride. Because it was in the middle of the ride, I was unable to take a photo, but it said "Please do not stand and bowed when the boat slide away"

It is a graffiti artists tag. People are starting to use stickers instead of spray paint cause they last longer. And I think it's the same group of vandals who acid etched heaps of Sydney trains's
