Here is a place for you to post some of the more unique and sillier signs in the Tampa Bay region. If you have pictures, that's even better.

Keeper brought up a good one. The sign on 275 for E/W Dale Mabry which goes North and South.

One that blew my mind when I first saw it was Senior Zone. Never saw such a thing. The best part about it is, this is on Fletcher by the University. Shouldn't there be young people in this area?

Instead of making senior zones can we just take away their driver's licenses?

I wish I still had a pic I took of a Billboard on Dale Mabry for a Hemmorhoids clinic. It said "You Rectum, We Fix 'em". My parents were down from Maine and that was their favorite pic they took while visiting!

They put it in front of John Knox Village (retirement community). It was an experiment to see if it worked. This allows older folks to cross the road without fearing for their lives. It's been there for several years. I work right near there and I NEVER see any elderly crossing the street.

One of the oddest signs I've seen is the one below. It's located in a strip mall in Northdale at Ehrlich and Dale Mabry. That's the post office building behind the sign.

Yea this is definitely odd. Ifa vehicle needs to stop only when pedestrians are crossing, then it should be a yield sign. The stop sign will make most people stop regardless of pedestrians.

Do you stop? I do, but I'm always nervous that the car behind me will rear-end my vehicle.
