Signs abound in our society. Some are warnings, others are informational, and then there are signs advocating an issue or political candidate. Signs can be official, professionally or hand-made, funny, nonsensical or serious. All make a statement, even if we can’t decipher it.
Signs Spotted features examples of these signs and then some that I’ve captured while on my rides. Come back now and again as I add new pictures whenever I find something worthy of posting. Click on a picture to enlarge it.
This is one of my favorites!
Better than charging everyone I suppose.

Do you think the video camera caught the person defacing the sign?

The latest in drain signs.
No, you’re not seeing double. There are two signs at the intersection of Fillmore and River Park Plaza (which is a lame name for a street.)

Don’t tease or otherwise hassle the soil. It’s sensitive.
The front of the sign advertised an upcoming pop-up bakery at 347 Colborne Street. I have no theory on why this side of the sign doesn’t do the same.
