One of my favorite sites is Drew Curtis' FARK on which he frequently links to BuzzFeed with some really interesting things. Here's one I hope everyone enjoys:

Always obey traffic laws. Except when you can’t tell what that law actually is @ [url=http://www.buzzfeed.com/h2/shfk/corollaelevate/road-signs-that-require-a-double-take]15 Road Signs That Require A Double Take

In St Martin, as we were entering the resort a road sign said: watch for sleeping police. I also have always wonder what a danger bridge is? You see so many signs that say read: danger bridge ahead.

Where I live the danger bridge could mean it "freezes over" way before the road does and you could end up in the river/stream.

"Sleeping policeman" in Britain, is a speed bump. I would assume that it means the same thing in St Martin.

I always hated this one, in Georgia. A car responds differently, if run onto a low or a soft shoulder, so I wish they would tell me which one to expect:

Here's one that always gets my attention:

I was about 30 before I figured that one out.

The precise wording in Pennsylvania was "Bridge freezes before road surface".

Huh? There's no road surface on the bridge? LOL

A simple "Watch for ice on bridge" always made more sense to me.

I learned to drive in the Chicago suburbs. I didn't understand it until I started driving, but when I was a kid it sure confused me.

here's another:

Blind Drive

I used to see this on a road around here and when they resurfaced the road they didn't put the sign back. The drive isn't any less "blind" today than it was before the road work.
