||Differing distances. These 3 signs are at the same
intersection. Note that the distances shown are all different.
||Tourist route shield. This shield is
facing the wrong way along a one-way route. I park beside it regularly. But
had done so for years before I even noticed there was a sign there at all.
||Ummm, so what route is this? Slight
overkill with the C 482 signage.
Flynn's Creek Upper, Vic.
||SS apostrophe S. I was lead to believe
that just the apostrophe alone was sufficient after a name ending in
S. So 3 S's is unusual.
||Wrong Way. Traffic island with arrows
pointing either side. Only problem is that any traffic either side of it
should be heading the opposite direction. Drouin, Vic.
||Keep Left...of? This odd
sign makes you wonder about the event that (probably) led to its erection.
Possibly an accident involving somebody driving on the wrong side of the
traffic island in the distance. In any case, it is not a good sign as it can
be confused with a Keep Left sign. And you really can't keep left of it.
It has been removed since the photo was taken. So I wasn't the only one to
see problems with it.
||Quick Sand. This sign fails hilariously
to capture the look of distress that somebody in quick sand would feel.
Unfortunately I've lost the details for this long ago contributed photo. But I
it was in WA and sent to me by a Mickie Quick.
||Inconsistent arrows. This is only a minor
annoyance. The upper sign has arrows pointing in the directions you would
expect for the type of intersection encountered. But the tourist signs below
seem to indicate a T junction. Dargo Hotel is straight ahead. The road just
happens to curve at the intersection. Dargo, Vic.
||This is a beauty. An information sign
warning of an advisory road sign ahead.
As superfluous as this seems at first, it is referring to a sign advising
the condition of a mountain road which can be closed by snow. Fairly
important to know before driving too far. So there is nothing wrong with
this sign. But it is very unusual.
Dargo area, Vic.
||Lane ends. What lane? On the left there
is a LEFT LANE ENDS - MERGE RIGHT sign and beyond that, a FORM 2 LANES sign.
This seems pointless on a freeway on ramp. There is barely a lane to end
anyway. And who doesn't expect an on ramp lane to end? Morwell, Vic.
||CLEARANCE - LOW CLEARANCE. The footbridge
has a CLEARANCE sign. Fair enough. But just past it is a LOW CLEARANCE sign
on a railway bridge.
||How far to Longford? Two different
distances are shown to Longford. The arrows on the tourist route sign seem
to be wrong, although it's possible the sign has been turned.
||Old and New Routes. Here's another
example of somebody not really with their mind on the job. The old State
Route 188 shield has been left on the post when the new C route numbers were
erected. It seems probable that the 188 sign was moved or put back on the
post considering its low position. Also worthy of note is the use of two
posts where one would've been neater. Double-sided brackets being available.
This section of road was closed the following day due to a deviation
||Cautions. Various signs warning about the
road conditions beside a 100km/h speed limit sign. No errors here. Just
seems wrong to have a 100km/h limit on such a road. In the unlikely event
anyone reached this speed, they'd obviously be driving dangerously. So why
not a lower limit?
ROAD CLOSED. Not what you would wish to see on such a
narrow road. The use of the chevron board below is interesting. Obviously
you couldn't turn left or right here.
