Signs on roads, toilets, fences and establishments in various places are so identical you can almost forget obeying them. If you have been travelling to different places, they might differ in illustrations and fonts. Yet, they still indicate the same restrictions in boring formats.
But, in some places around the world, some people used their clever minds to catch people’s attention and actually make them follow the rules. They intentionally and accidentally made street and establishment signs humorous through funny graphic designs or missing punctuation.
People might get confused, annoyed or find them funny. But one thing is for sure, they are effective attention-grabbers!
