My brief review of some road signs:

Lifesaving - ‘Think bike’

The majority of cyclists prefer to wear road colour Lycra, cycle, with head down and pedal as if they were in a race. Seemingly unaware they do not show up well to motorists.

Puzzling - ‘Share the road’

What are the other options?

No stopping -‘Lay-by closed’

What are people supposed to do in an emergency?

Irritating - ‘Road ahead closed’

Not another detour!

Amusing - ‘Slow Deer’

Often out of date - 'Flood’

Good for a chuckle? - ‘Credit Cards Taken’

Sign by a lay-by containing burger van near Alresford.
