mystery sign

Behold one of the mysteries of urban life. Why have a stop sign at this hill of crushed stone? "This is how far you crushed stone may go!"

You know what they say, this is a law-abiding country. Just put up a sign - case closed. Even these potentially rolling stones will comply. Well snapped!

(Incidentally, what does the lower sign say? The upper is obviously a stop sign.)

I don't know about that, Per! Do you remember this one?

I have no idea about the sign. The area was sealed of so I couldn't get around to have a look.

In Italy the sign probably would say: "absolutely forbidden to place even a single stone here".

It's reassuring to see these rocky fellows having a crush strictly confined within the designated territory.

I'm fascinated by this kind of absurd urban scenes! :-))) You don't imagine how many similar situations there are in Portugal! There is a daily show on TV about this and other absurd stuff too...
