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?
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!
That's Good Advice
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.
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.
Goes Without Saying
Though it may seem surprising, the waterways of Texas are home to the American alligator. While rattlesnakes may get most of the attention, Texas’s other deadly reptile is just as common.
We can understand the importance and reason for the first part of this sign as alligators are experts at lurking stealthily beneath the lake’s surface. However, the second half of the sign is just puzzling. How would you annoy an alligator? Make fun of its teeth? Call it names? We can’t imagine what park rangers had to have witnessed before they decided to create this sign.
