When it comes to warning drivers of flood zones, governments have to get creative… and maybe even a bit poetic as this sign displays. This creatively-written sign warns drivers that the road in front of them can get easily flooded and can quickly turn deadly.
We hope that the catchy rhyming words will inspire drivers to heed the warning and turn around. Though most of Texas is pretty flat and dry, rain storms can quickly lead to deadly and sudden flash floods which can quickly wash away a road.
Prison Yard Sale
This poor Texan got caught up in a burglary, and he’s looking to make some profit off of all of his goods before he’s got to do his time. He knew the cops would see some of the stolen stuff if he posted it online, so he decided to go the old-school route: he held a garage sale.
With the help of his girlfriend, he was able to sell off most of the stuff. Bryan ended up making enough money to have commissary for at least two years – which, if he gets out in half-time for good behavior, will be nearly all of his sentence.
This saying is an old one, but we have to agree that it's a good one. When you see a fence erected, it isn't always a nice feeling, so it's a good idea to make sure you help locals warm up to the idea by putting some type of text on it. Maybe we would have gone with something a little bit more funny and creative, but it's still a good choice.
How about a sign that says, "This fence is here to keep the grass greener on this side!" Sure, it's a playful twist on the classic phrase, but it adds a touch of humor and charm to the barrier. Let's make fence appreciation the latest trend in town!
Officers in Texas often have to chase down supersized trucks with off-road capabilities. Sometimes, it can all seem a bit intimidating. At least it did before the Highway Patrol decided to invest in this vehicle, which allows them to see over traffic coming from both directions, on all different types of terrain.
The other officers laughed at Steve when he originally suggested it, but now that they’ve tried it out, they’re completely on his side. Say hello to the Texas Highway Patrol Cruiser and keep this in mind the next time you’re driving through the Lone Star State. After all, would you want to turn around and see this thing chasing you?
A Culture of Suing
The United States of America has a culture of suing, and this sign looks to lay out the series of events for the passerby. You have been warned that you may get hurt and that your defense won’t stand up in a court of law as this will be used as evidence against you! We just love how this sign can predict the future for us.
That way, we know it's not the future we want for ourselves, and we can choose not to trespass. This can only happen in Texas, as you can try to prove us wrong, but it won't help you. We have looked everywhere. No other state dares to put up a sign like this.
