    I used to have to run the perimeter road at an airport. They had stop sign and a "Yield to Aircraft" sign. The threshold wasn't displaced, and the road wasn't far off the end of the runway.

    No, in fact, you aren't supposed to doing anything in response to low flying aircraft signs. They are there to warn you so people don't freak out quite so badly when a large aircraft looks like it's about to land on the Interstate.

    Wait... you mean you think the general motoring public is supposed to actually read the signs?!?

    They need to invent signs visible to both cars and trucks.

    That is for the deer to read and they know it is safe to cross, I live in a spot full of them, people go and stop in the middle of the road and try to stop everyone from passing, places to go things to do, aint gonna baby no deer when there are so many they have to cull the herd with government sharp shooters sometimes,,,,but no hunting allowed in this valley, they want all them critters for the city folks to see.

    Falling rock signs, with some poor person parked next to the cliff changing a flat tire. I have seen flattened cars here in Colorado, Georgetown hill my favorite.

    Saw a strange sign the other day right after kicking the wife out of the car, said" watch out for dear" then round the next corner and there she is standing in the road pointing a rifle at me, I thought I was home free but now I am tied to the dogs chain and the dog is inside laughing at me.

    Every time I see one of these, I'm reminded of Breaking Bad.

    I like the signs in Wisconsin, no engine braking except for emergency
