Lilly : So many petty restrictions out there - do you people stick to limits ?
Ronnie : Nah, everyone drives over them, here.
Lilly : Literally by the looks of it.

So that's what I've been doing wrong all these years. When I notice that my car speeds up or slows down unexpectedly, I always thought that it was a change in local gravity conditions caused by gravity waves caused by collapsing black holes. If only I had had a sign with "Hill" on it to take away that confusion!

@CElliottUK: Ha ha!! I took a few versions of this photo, and the first didn't have that sign, but then I saw the "hill" sign and realized it needed to be included! Thank you for the laugh (Lilly)
Pas facile la conduite sur ces routes ! Je te souhaite une bonne journée
14 Feb 2011 8:11am
Whaha, great dialog and matching photos!
14 Feb 2011 9:13am
Good thought...watch out and drive safely! Nice photos and composition.
14 Feb 2011 10:11am
I guess it's a sign of the times
14 Feb 2011 10:16am
The right one can be on a section of variable speed... Depending on time, on traffic intensity, ... the signal can be put up or not. Well seen.
14 Feb 2011 10:38am
@El pare: What a wonderful idea - when that becomes widespread, they should call it the "El pare indicator' !! (Ronnie)
A smart and funny dialogue! Everywhere d'Europe is the same ... The perfect image and self explanatory. Altogether a delight! A hug Ronnie! Adela
14 Feb 2011 10:47am
i agree: to rubbish with all the signs!
14 Feb 2011 11:25am
Ha ha - where is the hill?
14 Feb 2011 11:38am
@kitty: ha ha . . yes, that's what I was asking - it must be around the corner, thus the warning ! (Ronnie)
Respect des obligations avec la neige !.. ))
Que de choses interdites à voir en même temps...

Weight limit - oh dear (& thanks for ur birthday wishes)
14 Feb 2011 1:27pm
Great scenario ,very well done !
14 Feb 2011 1:40pm
I bet that poor sign was driven over, 30 times! Thanks for the chuckles.
14 Feb 2011 1:57pm
They tell you to keep your eyes on the road but it is so cluttered with signs, at least Ronnie's version makes that possible. Maybe people see them better that way.
Love that ornate lamp post, that belongs in storage with your other stuff, Ronnie.
There is no limit to what you two offer us. Great work again!
14 Feb 2011 2:03pm
@Barbara: Thank you, Barbara. As Marleen says, below, finding stuff for this site sure does make us re-evaluate everyday things ! (Ronnie)
Normally I try to avoid traffic signs in pictures, but after viewing your pics I won't do that any more!;-))
14 Feb 2011 2:12pm
@Marleen: Working this site certainly changes any established rules of photography, I assure you, Marleen ! (Ronnie)
hahaha !! I got this one :-)))
14 Feb 2011 2:15pm
I love this one - once again quite a giggle.
14 Feb 2011 2:44pm
Perfect expression of what everyone thinks!
14 Feb 2011 2:57pm
true story! a few years back I saw a new campaign for drivers: over the limit. under arrest. my thought was "wow, that's really, really harsh!" until I realized that it wasn't referring to speed limit at all, but instead to blood alcohol limit. and I'm all for that!
14 Feb 2011 3:24pm
@marci: ha ha, yes . . it does read either way . . but I sure agree with the real intent. (Ronnie)
Il faut respecter les limites et pas les jeter par terre :)
14 Feb 2011 4:07pm
@Dilwenn: Bien dit, mon friemd. Ayons le respect! (Ronnie)
Great story here !
Nice job joining the 2 pictures here too.
14 Feb 2011 5:06pm
While all these signs complicated I think I'm lost :) Good day.
14 Feb 2011 5:12pm
14 Feb 2011 5:37pm
great load of sign, super image
14 Feb 2011 6:27pm
I am sure if they banned all women drivers they could also remove 90% of street signs. Do I hear Lilly hissing..... ? :0
14 Feb 2011 6:41pm
@Michael: [Where did I put my tin hat ? (Invisible Ronnie)]
Il faut chercher vraiment ce qui n'est pas limité !!
Très bien vu !!
14 Feb 2011 7:14pm
Great shot and great story! How true to life!
14 Feb 2011 7:33pm
Goodness, I'll have to drive slower than 30 to be able to read all those signs on the left when driving past. Next winter somebody might decide to add another sign: " SNOW ".
14 Feb 2011 8:37pm
14 Feb 2011 8:51pm
@apodromos: Σας ευχαριστώ, φίλο!
14 Feb 2011 9:23pm
Ah yes, another clever take from the two of you. I have to say that that is sure a lot of snow!!!
14 Feb 2011 9:42pm
a great story! A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say.
14 Feb 2011 9:47pm
huhuhu look at the think snow. must not be easy to walk onto :)
14 Feb 2011 10:15pm
Literally is true! There are so many downed signs right now after the blizzard it's a novelty to see one standing! Great composition guys!
14 Feb 2011 10:40pm
I do like those signs that warn of reduced speeds for sharp corners. In some places I've been you ignore them at your peril.
14 Feb 2011 11:42pm
When there are too many signs ... I do not know what to do .... ;o)
15 Feb 2011 5:52am
Wonderfully seen and captured...great conversation:)
15 Feb 2011 7:42am
@Pavan Kaul: Thanks, Pavan. (L&R)
One good thing about signs is that you can often change the wording with a quick bit of graffiti. Here, for example, I'm sure Lilly would agree that adding a "C" to the "HILL" sign would give it much more meaning!
15 Feb 2011 10:37am
@Stephen: ha ha . . nice one, Stephen ! I shall be on the lookout for those today ! (Ronnie)
Drivers should be careful!
15 Feb 2011 12:15pm
Lol. BTW, from your comment at my site, you might want to check out this link on that museum roof I posted.
15 Feb 2011 2:30pm
@Viewfinder: Thanks, Glenn . . yes, there's a lot of that stuff about right now but insulation made from discard bluejeans is new to me ! (Pale-Green Ronnie)
A neat "find" to locate a downed sign to use so well. Your usual high quality comment too. Well done.
15 Feb 2011 3:27pm
i sincerely hope the weight limits have nothing to do with you, lilly ... ;-)
15 Feb 2011 4:50pm
I don't like weight limits. No need to get personal... Happy Valentine's Day and Silly Tuesday all together.
15 Feb 2011 5:04pm
haha here's what i got to say about yer '30'!!!! fun post as usual :)
15 Feb 2011 5:11pm
Lol... hills ? I can't see any hills ! Happy St :) Well done !
15 Feb 2011 5:43pm
Well seen and captured. Lovely conversation as always... Love it. :)
15 Feb 2011 6:02pm
great composition for the title
15 Feb 2011 7:03pm
sometimes it's really hard to consider the limits!
15 Feb 2011 7:29pm
Bang! You go Ronnie!
15 Feb 2011 8:25pm
Lilly : nice DOF ! Ronnie : nice vignetting !
15 Feb 2011 9:29pm
well done this one whahahaha
15 Feb 2011 9:49pm
You always have the perfect commentary!
15 Feb 2011 10:12pm
HAHA, The right is how it should be!
15 Feb 2011 10:50pm
haha! sometimes i don't get your humour because of the language, now, I clearly understand and appreciate. great :D
15 Feb 2011 11:12pm
@JCJ: Smiles . . yes, this one travels well, we thought ! Thanks, JCJ.
Very well done Ronnie!
15 Feb 2011 11:38pm
ha ha - very good. I could do with someone removing some of the road signs the council have put up recently...budget cuts what budget cuts!!
16 Feb 2011 12:32am
Ha! I'm with Lilly - TOO many restrictions - everywhere if you ask me! Great shot as usual - : )!
16 Feb 2011 1:13am
I'll be there in no time - flat!
16 Feb 2011 2:50am
@Stephen Phillips: lol . . nice one !
So many restrictions that lead to streets with a lot of sign clutter. Thank you for removing one of them. ;-)
16 Feb 2011 2:59am
@Steven: ha ha . ."Not me, Officer" !
Yes, one must look out for lurking hills. That reminds me of the "curve in the road" sign one sees in the middle of the flat prairies, (as if you couldn't see it approaching for the last two kilometres), which understandably takes folk by surprise when it is the only change in scenery since the last curve an hour before.
16 Feb 2011 3:17am
@Andrea: Yes, agreed. There are enough of those totally unnecessary signs out there to fill a whole website - I'm sure someone is doing it somewhere ! Thanks, Andrea. (Ronnie)
The easiest way to read signs is when they're lying on the ground. Everyone knows that.
16 Feb 2011 6:09am
This one down here now is for snails & slugs to climb on without any risk to drive over 30 ;))
16 Feb 2011 11:23am
@k@: My snails send their regards . . just keep the knife and fork out of sight ! Have a great day, Karine. (Ronnie)
A very radical way to get rid of rules. ;-))))))))
16 Feb 2011 12:40pm
Over the limit, indeed :)
16 Feb 2011 1:38pm
I can see over limit & Out of limit...great fun.
16 Feb 2011 2:48pm
Maybe lying down is just a way to catch more attention... you know, already too many signs out there!:-) Fantastic observation and lovely presentation, as always! Have a nice day... and do concentrate while driving!:-)))
16 Feb 2011 3:27pm
Oh, oh... i have the impression that some are tired of the limitations and various bans...
The road sign "hill" makes me laugh... :-)
16 Feb 2011 4:53pm
@Evelyne Dubos: Thanks, Evelyne. Yes, the 'Hill' sign is a strange one to me, too . . I believe it is there because the hill is out f sight around a corner. (Ronnie)
over the limit ... its one of my habit :D
16 Feb 2011 6:14pm
@Goddess: Bad Goddess. (Ronnie)
16 Feb 2011 7:52pm
What's all that white stuff?
17 Feb 2011 1:26am
It looks like someone might need to fix that sign a bit, Ronnie... Excellent composition!
17 Feb 2011 1:31am
hoho,30 does seem a bit slow for me,but maybe its due to the slippery weather!:)
17 Feb 2011 3:13am
Sooo many signs these days, you can't see the sign for the sign!
17 Feb 2011 4:55pm
At least one place where civil disobedience lives!
20 Feb 2011 12:01am
Very good juxtaposition of pictures and dialog as usual. On Lilly photo the snow makes those signs useless and funny. Ronnie you should take care before crossing the street and don't hide behind one of those sign please !
20 Feb 2011 12:14am
21 Feb 2011 6:13pm
Someone killed it!!! ; )
21 Feb 2011 7:50pm
Looks like nobody could even get there, let alone park there! But I like your thought process with the two images.
