52 Funny Road Signs That Are Sure To Make You Laugh
1 No Turns
According to this signage, your only option when you reach this stop sign is to drop driving altogether. You can’t turn right or left, and you can’t go forward or back.
It’s unclear how you even managed to get to the stop sign, but you’re pretty much stuck there now.
2 Road Closed
This sign is completely normal on its own, but quickly becomes hilarious due to the situation.
If you couldn’t tell that the road was flooded by the high water, there’s a sign letting you know not to drive any further.
3 Sign Not In Use
This sign is quite the conundrum. It says “sign not in use,” but by pure virtue of the sign being there, it’s in use.
Also, why did they have to create a sign just to say it’s not in use? Wouldn’t it have been better to not put up the sign at all? We’re still scratching our heads of this one.
4 Accidents Prohibited
Accidents rarely happen deliberately. That’s why they’re called “accidents.”
But in case you’re thinking of crashing your car into someone else, this sign wants you to know that accidents are strictly prohibited on this road.
5 Human-Sized Mosquito
If you’ve ever lived in an area densely populated with mosquitos, then you know this sign isn’t as funny as it seems. In some parts of the world, the mosquitos certainly look big enough to carry you away.
In our opinion, it’s best to stay away from those parts of the earth altogether.
6 You’ll Never Get To Work
Whoever put up this electric sign decided to have a little fun with the commuters stuck in traffic.
There’s only one thing worse than sitting at a standstill during morning rush hour, and that’s having a sign poking fun at you for being late.
7 Drink & Drive
Rather than giving the typical “don’t drink and drive” warning, this sign decided to take a different approach.
It doesn’t care if you choose to drink and drive, but it wants you to know that you’ll probably end up in jail, in the hospital, or in the morgue.
8 Deck The Halls
This sign offers a holiday reminder that road rage is dangerous.
Think happy thoughts and try not to freak out at all the idiot drivers around you.
9 Garbage Only
Talk about mixed messages.
Apparently, you can throw garbage here, but you can’t throw away trash…whatever that means.
10 Wit’s End
Who knew that saying you’re at your wit’s end referred to an actual place?
If you’re feeling like you just can’t take anymore and you don’t know what to do next, this street is the perfect place for you.
11 Suicidal Deer
Apparently, a normal “beware of deer” sign wasn’t enough to communicate just how bad the deer are in this area.
Instead, the sign people let the drivers know that the deer aren’t only around, they also have a death wish.
12 Look For Penguins
Apparently, the penguins at this beach have an odd habit of hiding under cars.
Maybe it makes them feel safe, but that feeling of security will disappear in an instant once the engine is started.
13 Don’t Even Think About It
A simple “no parking” sign was way too easy for these people. Instead, they want you to know that you shouldn’t even think about parking here.
With an aggressive sign like that, it’s smarter to just move along and find a different parking space.
Whoever installed this sign must have been a fan of classic rock.
If anything, it might encourage passing drivers to come to a full stop just so they can read the lyrics.
15 Which Way?
Have you ever seen a more confusing “one way” sign?
While drivers obviously want to drive the correct way on the roads, it’s hard to know which way is right if the sign has an arrow pointing in both directions.
16 Warthogs Have Right of Way
This town apparently has a large population of warthogs they need to cater to. Not only that, but the warthogs are on the same level as the town’s children.
You better drive slow here—you wouldn’t want to be responsible for hitting either a warthog or a child.
17 Keep Right
A “keep right” sign is pretty clear. But this sign contradicts itself by telling drivers to go right with an arrow that points left.
Was this a mistake or a case of someone not knowing right from left? Either way, it’s bad.
18 This Way To…
This sign doesn’t even know what it’s pointing to. The arrow points left, but the question mark above it offers no information as to what you can actually find if you turn left.
In other words, the sign is completely pointless.
19 Waterproof Cars
This sign was obviously placed in the wrong location.
Unless, of course, this town happens to have a large supply of cars that can drive in water.
20 Trees Don’t Move
This hilarious sign points out the obvious—trees can’t move.
In other words, watch where you’re going and try not to hit a tree.
21 See Our Jail
This town isn’t playing around with its visitors. While they’re happy to welcome newcomers into the fold, they won’t be kind to people who disobey their traffic laws.
Drive fast and you’ll end up in jail—them’s the rules.
22 Beware Of Cow Sign
According to this sign, the cows in this area are quite aggressive. If you happen to come in contact with one, it might just flip your car!
That certainly gives a whole new meaning to cow-tipping.
23 Road Ends
In case you couldn’t see the lake clearly sitting at the end of the road, this warning sign lets you know that you better stop driving soon, lest you drive right into the water.
And you definitely don’t want to do that.
24 Secret Nuclear Bunker
How secret is a nuclear bunker if there’s a sign directing traffic to it?
Apparently, anyone and everyone can visit this sensitive sight.
25 Penguins Crossing
While most people don’t have to worry about penguins where they live, there are some parts of the world where penguins pop up all over the place. Much like deer, they probably won’t stop for traffic.
So, it’s best to keep an eye out and make sure you don’t accidentally run over one of the non-flying birds.
26 If You Hit This…
For some drivers, hanging a sign with the height of the bridge isn’t enough to deter them from driving under it, whether or not they fit. This town decided to make things a little more clear.
If you hit those warning paddles, you better turn around because there’s no way you’re making it under the bridge.
Whoever painted this sign on the ground is having a really bad day.
After all, you have to be pretty out of it to not only spell “stop” wrong, but to paint the entire sign before you even notice.
28 Beware of Cat
“Beware of cat” signs aren’t all that common. But apparently, in this part of the world, cats are something that should be feared.
Keep an eye out while you’re driving for any lurking felines!
29 Flying Cars?
This sign is hilarious in large part because it makes no sense. What is it warning against? Flying cars?
If you ask us, it looks like the sign is unfinished and someone forgot to come back and fix it.
30 Don’t Drown
You’d think the message behind this sign would be obvious, but apparently not.
If the road is flooded, don’t drive on it—it’s that simple.
31 Two-Hour Parking
According to this sign, you’re allowed to park in this space for two hours.
However, that mandate only lasts for one hour. Do you see the confusion?
32 Witch Roadway
This street marking appears in Salem, Massachusetts, the sight of the Salem Witch Trials.
Apparently, the city is leaning into its dark history. But good news! If you’re a witch, you now have a designated roadway in Salem.
33 12.5 Speed Limit
Speed limits are hard to follow on the best of days. But this sign makes it just a little bit trickier to follow the law.
You can’t go 13mph—you have to balance your speedometer right at 12.5…or else.
34 No Pedestrians
This sign takes a rather dark approach to warning pedestrians to steer clear.
However, it’s probably effective. After all, no one wants to be impaled.
35 Turn Right
Someone really messed up the design of these streets. After what we can only assume was a lot of confusion, the town installed this sign.
If you want to go left, you first have to go right. It doesn’t make much sense, but it’s the way it is.
36 Zombies Ahead
If you’re wondering where the zombie apocalypse started, it was in this town.
Hopefully, most drivers saw the sign and turned around before the zombies could get them.
37 Give Cyclists Space
The irony of this sign is almost too much to bear. It’s great to ask drivers to give cyclists space, but the sign itself is taking up the whole bike lane.
How do you expect drivers to listen when you can’t even follow your own rules?
38 Frog Parking
This isn’t a “no parking” area, but it’s also not suitable for cars.
The only things allowed to park here are frogs. And the drivers better listen if they don’t want to get toad!
39 My Way Or The Highway
This sign took the phrase “my way or the highway” literally.
Let’s hope there’s a freeway somewhere near this street so the drivers can take the highway option if they so choose.
40 Welcome to Accident
When you’re on the road, reading signs about accidents is usually a bad thing.
But when you’re a resident of Accident, Maryland, it’s a pleasant sight to see the town’s “Welcome to Accident” sign because it means you’re nearly home.
41 Welcome To Boring
Some people love exciting vacations. But for those who are actually on the hunt for something a little boring, Scotland has the place for you.
Head on over if you want to experience the most unexciting getaway of your life.
42 Welcome To Dull
Apparently, Scotland isn’t the only place with boring and dull cities. If you’re looking for something a little closer to home, head to Dull, Oregon.
But be warned: There’s not much to do in this uneventful town.
43 Chicken Dinner
Winner, winner, chicken dinner! If you live on this street, you’ll always feel like a winner.
Unfortunately, you might always feel hungry as well.
44 Far From It
Hopefully, the name of this sign rings true for all the people who drive by it. After all, your car is the worst place to be closetopoopen.
However, if you happen to have a business or home on this road, it might be a little hard to tell people your address without laughing.
45 Hard To Find
Imagine trying to explain to someone how they should get to this street. No, it’s not hard to find, but the name is hard to find. No, that’s not what I meant either!
People might move away from Hard to Find Drive just so they better direct people on how to find their address.
46 Go Away
On the surface, this street sign seems completely normal. But as soon as you say it out loud, it becomes hilarious.
Thankfully, if you live on this street and you don’t want to see someone, this street name is the perfect way to subtly hint at them to just go away.
47 To Turn Or Not To Turn
There’s nothing worse than conflicting street signs. According to the bright green arrow, you’re allowed to turn left. But according to the sign right next to it, left turns are prohibited.
Which one is correct?! Do you try your luck and take the left or keeping driving until you find a better spot to turn?
48 Under Police Surveillance
Yes, the parking lot is under police surveillance. But no, they won’t stop someone trying to steal something from your car.
If they’re not there to stop robberies, what exactly are the police monitoring?
49 Just Speed Up A Bit
There’s just no way this sign can be real. Then again, we wouldn’t put anything past anyone. However, it’s unlikely any car would actually make the jump over that huge gap in the road.
If you ever come across a sign like this, do the smart thing and ignore it.
50 No Outlet
You can’t help but chuckle at the placement of these two signs. If you were expecting to find all kinds of electricity on Electric Avenue, think again.
In fact, the street doesn’t even have an outlet for you to plug into.
51 Be Bear Aware
Sometimes the best way to get people’s attention is to approach a fact with humour.
Indeed, in the presence of a bear, humans are no longer the king, so they should be vigilant!
52 Risk Of Peeing Famous
Relieving your bladder in this area is definitely at your own risk!
Not only will you risk a fine, but possibly an embarrassing YouTube celebrity!
