I've been collecting funny signs along the road. Here's one I saw near our terminal in Vancouver, Washington where a bike path crossed a railroad track.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Epic Beard, you have given me a funny flashback of a sign I saw in IL. As if STOP wasn't obvious enough...

Those are both awesome!

There's an epic sign - I want to say it's on I-40 heading west into Albuquerque. There are a bunch of cliffs alongside the road and it's a picture of a guy standing there with a giant boulder about to crash down on his head. I'm assuming they're warning us about falling rocks but it cracks me up every time.

And I believe on that same highway almost in the same spot but heading east is the dumbest sign idea I've seen. It simply says something like "Location of fatal bus crash" and then gives the date. I believe it was in 1982. I always think "Thank God they don't decide to put up a permanent sign in every location there was ever a fatal wreck or every highway in America would be lined with "tombstone signs". Geesh. No disrespect to anyone of course, but for a million reasons I say let's not do that.

Brett, I know about that fatal bus crash sign. Seen it plenty of times. It got my wife curious so she actually researched it. Apparently the bus was loaded with children and a drunk driver collided with the bus. Ill take a picture of both when I'm in that area and put it on this thread.

I mean, I have all the respect in the world for the victims. But putting up a permanent sign to forever remind everyone of the tragedy? I just don't think that's helpful to anyone, including the victims and their families.

A cross with flowers are enough. I agree. I know they mean well, but sometimes our good intentions cause more harm. Maybe a sign several yards ahead warning of a dangerous area would be better served.

Great signs though Tracy and Daniel. Hard not to laugh at those two.

The bus wreck was on I64 in Kentucky. I always laughed at the open joint signs on the bridges in the NE or the no hitch hicker signs!

I've always puzzled over that fatal bus accident sign.

Here's a couple of funny things I've seen. I don't remember where I saw this, but it was a sign at a beer joint on some route I was on. It said: "Beer, as cold as a mother-in-laws love"

Then, I think I was in Pennsylvania maybe, where I came to a section of highway with a warning sign that said something like "Danger aggressive drivers in this area" and then not fifty feet down the road there was one of those yellow diamond shaped signs with the Amish horse and buggy on it! I don't know, that just struck me as funny! I was on high alert for about ten minutes watching out for any bearded thugs in wide flat brimmed black hats trying to ram my big rig with their draft horses!

I saw one by a farmer on I65 in Kentucky south of louisville. It said....

If they're cows, Of COURSE they are used, an unused cow is called a Heifer. :P
