Spotted On My Way To Work

Recommended Posts

I love these Sign Spotting items. Doug Lansky has two great books out of photos of signs from around the world. You may wish to submit your photo to the Signspotting website.

What's it for - birds, maybe, or deer, foxes, other wild critters???????? :D A better question might be where went the road that the stop sign is/was on?? It looks like a torn up road bed over to the right by the No Turning (think that's what it is) sign.

It's a brand new road, opened just this year. Here's Google Maps' view of it. Turn off labels and watch the road labeled Illinois St. disappear.

 

Maybe the stop sign is there to check suburban sprawl!

 

Jim,

 

I don’t see the problem!

 

The sign is there for anyone who backs up into the grass. Before you pull forward you are to make a full boulevard stop. They probably have a police cruiser in the bushes waiting to tag violators! :rolleyes:

 

Do you see this often in Indiana? :)B)

 

Keep the Show on the Road!

Dave,

 

Yes, of course -- they're just trying to cover any eventuality! Why didn't I think of that? (smacks forehead)

Jim,

 

You are probably the source of the problem! :P They have spotted a red car driving in strange places, on overgrown old right of ways, etc. Not wanting to endanger you or others they are putting up stop signs. I think they call them "Jimster stops."

 

BTW, your link to Google Maps made me look closer at them for making auto trail maps. Google Earth doesn't scale well for what I envision, but Google Maps may. I'm going to take a closer look now.

 

Keep the Show on the Road!

Dave, be aware that Indiana's aerial images are unusually good on Google Maps. The images for neighboring Illinois are awful. So it kind of varies.
