As seen on Streeton Drive on Sunday afternoon:
It’s called a life exit: when life becomes too much for you handle, and/or Nick Cave’s songs have finally gotten to you –
Exit this waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy.
Kinda related, I noticed Canberra Centre management has taken down this exit sign:
I kind of like it; it’d be a shame if they came and took it down now. 🙂
Any concerned citizen can actually file a complaint about a road sign using this form:
Select “Transport Roads & Traffic” as your section and then “Traffic & Road Signs” as your subsection.
Also, point at this thread, so that CanberraConnect and TAMS staff become more aware of citizen bloggery.
Does anyone here know if TAMS make these signs in house, or are they done by a contractor?
Guess it’s just an extension of their use of SMS-style signs, where it’s a spelling-free zone…
Like some ministerials I see…
A pregnant Aussie and a pregnant kiwi are sitting on a park bench knitting jumpers for their unborn babies when the Aussie says to the Kiwi lass
“I hope mines a boy, cause I’m using blue wool”
The Kiwi has a think about it and a few minutes later says,
“Hope mines retarded, I just fucked up the arms.”
Sorry, but I had to post this and it’s the funniest joke I’ve heard in ages.
No spell-checker in the road sign division?
Ah, hell, it’s just a reflection of the modern education system anyway. Maybe it’s misspelled to make the kiddies feel better about themselves?
Is quality control really that hard??
This city is full of spelling errors.
We’d be a national laughing stock for it, if we didn’t share the Commonwealth with Queensland and Tasmania, who out-stupid us.
“Why was the sign changed to begin with? Vandals?”
The ACT Govt seem to be upgrading a few signs around the suburb as a few of them are faded and shabby looking, and the old one at this location was obviously incorrect as it said “Fremantle Dr”.
Could have been worse I suppose: at least it doesn’t say “Freemason Dr”! 😉
Obviously a doctor.
Who’s Mantle & what’s he done?
There’s a stack of wrong roadsigns around, once you start looking for them. Eg the southbound exit from the GDE onto Ginninderra Dr wrongly labels the latter as National Route 25.
heh – classic.
Why was the sign changed to begin with? Vandals?
Hehe! I wonder how long until it’ll be fixed?
Is Canberra's signature dish:
