Crazy Dutch Traffic Signs

Holland has traffic signs in EXCESS. I sometimes thinksthey even distract you form the traffic. But then there is ... ahhh, the Dutch creativity !  Above, somebody applied a sticker with  the Death on the board where you read: "dead end path".
Another interesting sticker which regularly appear somewhere in a road in theregion of Brabant. The locals consider it funny. The local mayor considers it the work of a vandal.  


 Some people even  plan and order their own private traffic signs. A farmer ordered this one above and place it along a road near his property. He has a deaf cat and on the sign one can literally read: crossing deaf cat !
And the explanation of this one above...   I have no clue. Any ideas, anyone ?



What should I do now ?


"A little kiss and you drive away". What ??? Well, you spot this nearby schools. The parents should give a quick kiss and drop their kids without parking the car. There are also "K+R" painted on the streets, which means: kiss & ride.

Adorei!Que incrível!
Se na Holanda o excesso as vezes chateia,aqui a falta de sinalização aborrece e cria transtornos nada divertidos...
Adorei a frase "A little kiss and you drive away"....Fiquei com vontade de fazer um outdoor e colocar na porta das escolas daqui.
Vc lembra como era a Voluntários da Pátria,e suas milhares de escolas?Agora,imagina,20 anos depois e zilhões de carros a mais nas ruas...ir à Botafogo na hora da saída escolar é impraticável!Parabéns pelo Post.Como sempre,arrasou

About doodlopend: dood = dead, lopend = walking.
