Odd Traffic Signs

Sometimes traffic signs have peculiar messages or symbols. They may be understood by people who live there, but to outsiders they are confusing or just "odd". Here is a collection of some.

If you have any signs that you want to add, these should be actual signs, not hand written or business signs email them to: cuts@uwm.edu
