What’s wrong with this picture?

Found this at the new Altitude apartments in Belconnen.

(ED: It’s much easier to see if you click on the image and view it on Lady Bhall’s flickr page)

What’s Your opinion?

Yes, the minimum height of the ceiling is 2.15, but the sign on the way out is probably not necessary.

hmmmm Dredging the very bottom of the barrel on a slow contribution day it looks like. I would have read it the way it is intended, that the lowest available (minimum) height is 2.15m. Next article please

Seems clear to me. The minimum height of the ceiling, or protrusions, is 2.15m. So I won’t be entering it in my 4wd which is about 2.5m.

Seems to be as correct as all of the places that tell you what the maximum clearance is. If I’m driving a tall vehicle what I’m interested in is the minimum clearance–because that’s what I’m going to hit.

Yes, but minimum clearance is different to minimum height. Like most such signs, I think they got confused between “minimum clearance” (ie. at lowest point) and “maximum (allowable vehicle) height” (ie. height of vehicle).

Minimum height 215 m? Is that all? Sign made in China probs.

If you squint there’s a decimal point (and some bad kerning).

Dammit – back to the Where’s Wally books for some practice …

To park their you must drive a LandRover with roofracks, a roof mount for your retro fixed gear pushbike or one of those stupid Thule roof coffins.

The direction arrows won’t be visible until the door is up ?

YeahBuddy 11:37 am 24 Jul 13

Traffic direction arrows are on the other side of the closed roller doors?

It’s like those rides at the theme park – you must be this high to enter.

D’oh, on second viewing I can just make out the swipe card sensor. As you were.

Holden Caulfield 10:58 am 24 Jul 13

Haha, that’s quite good.

There’s also the small matter of there being no sensor for what’s presumably meant to be a swipe card entry.
