the first sign looks like the hairpin bend sign...
And the second one tells no U turn . Guess no U turn wins

+ 1 to rlvl.

1st "Right Curve/Hairpin Ahead" is advisory but "No Uturn" is manadatory and hence, to be obeyed/followed.

Reviving an old thread to look for weird and wacky traffic signs and markings. Here are a couple:

1. A Stop sign on the main carriageway, in conjunction with a proper traffic light signal.
Traffic rules and signs-stopsign.jpg

Why this is weird/wacky:
Junctions without traffic lights or roundabouts are controlled by stop signs on minor roads and by white, yellow and black priority diamond signs on the major road. In [some countries], stop signs are restricted to situations wherein coming to a dead stop is actually necessary because of severely limited sight lines. At the vast majority of minor intersections in these countries Give Way signs and/or equivalent road markings are used. Finally, at the busier crossing streets, Give Way signs may be replaced by (mini) roundabouts, which also work on the give way (rather than stop) principle.
From Wikipedia
2. Lane markings without adequate width. Unbroken lane marking.
Traffic rules and signs-lanemarking.jpg

Why this is weird/wacky:
The centre lane is not wide enough to accommodate a 4-wheeler, which is the minimum width requirement of a lane, unless specifically meant for 2-wheelers or bicycles. The left lane has an unbroken line, which essentially disallows traffic from crossing it. This left lane is designated in Delhi as the bus lane, but the lane is not even wide enough to accommodate a bus all along its length.

Mods: Dont know if this is the correct thread to post this, if required move to relevant thread.

Was amused to read this news. Portable barricades with LED blinkers are being provided for the traffic cops in the city of Coimbatore. The logic is this will help reduce the accidents. Never knew that the barricades were a source of accidents. The barricade comes with set of wheels to move if required & a shelter to house cops in case of rain or sun. The LED blinkers can be operations for full 48 hrs once charged and have a solar panel as power source.

Folks, reviving an old thread. Was confused as to post it here or on the quirky signs thread but thought of putting it here. Actually these signs are not funny/quirky by any means. They provide useful tips/news to the road users in a jovial manner. So here it goes.
