The highway between Maricopa, AZ and Gila Bend, AZ is known by locals as "dead cow highway" because of the toll late night traffic takes on range cattle. Yeah, cattle still wander the range in some areas out here. Anyway, the Highway Dept decided to put up some warning signs:










I've never ridden that stretch of road without seeing at least on departed bovine by the side of the road.

Hi Rob,

No, that pic was taken in the Ochoco National Forest in Oregon off of Hwy 26. I was enroute to the Painted Hills Nat'l Monument at the time - probably about 20 miles west of Mitchell would be my guess. I can't remember the exact road and this was before I had GPS so no track to refer back to (life was hard before GPS!)

This sign sleighs me!

I was out riding yesterday (60 degrees in Wisconsin in March...oh YEA!!) and blew past a sign I wish I could have taken a photo of. Traffic and no shoulder prevented a stop. It was your standard deer crossing sign (in WI that means a silhouette of a leaping deer), to which some clown had added a large red dot on the end of the deer's nose! Who knew Rudolph frequented southwestern WI?

Here are three that Mrs. Radical and I found as funny when traveling in Ireland last year.

1st pic was in front of a huge bay. So it's not like the water wasn't obvious. However, it was across the street from a pub, go figure. So maybe the patrons needed warning.

2nd and 3rd were about 1/4 mile apart, which in combination is what made us laugh.

Yep, there are some funny signs in England too. When I was stationed there back in the early 80s there were signs here and there that said "LARGE PLANT CROSSING". I always kept my eye out for a huge ficus crossing the road, sort of like Day of the Triffids, but never did see one. I think they were pulling my leg.
