Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign
Are you nodding your head along now and jamming out, having read the title of this post? If I even hear the word “sign,” that song starts to play itself in some part of my brain. Hence, I had the urge (and followed through to) Google the video by Tesla after reviewing the website Safety Sign.
The good people of Safety Sign can help you out with all your Traffic Signs, wash your hands signs, no parking zone signs, and all that good stuff. Seriously. I often wondered where you could get custom-made signs, like the sign at Six Flags on the bridge standing over the giant splash ride that says, “If you stand on this bridge, you will get wet!” Kidding aside, my school alone actually has and uses all of the signs featured on their homepage. Last year alone, my school had need to order new restroom signs for three different restroom facilities, a Caution: Slippery When Wet floor stand for when we have to mop up a spill, and three Handicapped parking spot signs. Our school was, needless to say, going through some renovations. In fact, Husband and I wound up taking home the wood that was torn out of the building because he uses so much reclaimed wood in his work projects. We’ve been joking that he ought to have his own sign that says “Will Take Your Wood.”
I live in a rural area, and we’re pretty low on Street Signs. Giving direction is like sending people on a short tour of the natural wonders of the area — turn left at the big rock, go right when you see the red mailbox, if you pass the oak tree that got struck by lightning, you need to make a U-turn because you went too far. Really, a couple street signs would come in handy. Of course, we’d probably need about four street signs per location because every road has about three different names. In fact, I read an article not too long ago that California is notorious for having too many honorary street names that few people even know about, in favor of referring to the various thoroughfares by their highway or interstate number. We’ve also been looking to get a sign that explains that used toilet paper needs to be flushed down the toilet. Believe it or not, younger students struggle with this action.
While browsing around their Road Signs, I noticed their evacuation route signs. It’s important to have good evacuation route signs. In Dana Point, California, they have Tsunami evacuation route signs, and one of my favorites is the one next to the beach with the arrow pointing in the opposite direction. Duh.
