I never really knew that an endeavour for road safety could go too far, but turns out, I was wrong. Or at least that's what residents of the Burgundy region in France think. The region's authorities put up a rather odd traffic sign that reads "there are still children to crush, you can accelerate."
The region's authorities resorted to installing the disputed sign after other arrangements (including speed breakers, roundabout and a 30Km/h speed-limit) to persuade drivers to slow down were unsuccessful. The morbid sign comes as a frantic approach to curb speeding in this area afflicted with a history of accidents. However, the residents are not amused at the decision to employ black humour.
Is the sign morbid? Yes. Will it be effective? We'll have to wait to find out.
