Ok....this is at the exit/entrance of a divided highway (Rt72@Rt177) in Plainville Connecticut. I croped out the road to hide the fact that the no left turn sign was to prevent people from going up the exit ramp. The left turn only lane starts after this. Where I took this shot there is only one lane. Having driven many years, I find it is rough on the sheet metal of the drivers door to turn left from a right lane. The picture wouldn't have been as funny showing the road. Thank you all for your comments....Steve

I get the feeling that it would make perfect sense if the left side of the road wasn't cropped. If not, then you should have included it to demonstrate the irony.

Yeah, I guess it's time to just stop. I think this shot would be more effective with less tree and more road, possibly a car on the road - and best of all if its left turn signal was going.

hilarious!

Good humor with this image. I feel, that a way to add to this would be to have the larger sign all of the way to the right and extra space to the left. Then your attention would also be drawn to the left.

LOL, that's great...

yes, a true irony, one of very few. Nice capture.

LOL! Almost missed the sign in the back!

Since the second sign is obviously meant for the RIGHT lane, this is stretching it
10/01/2003 08:35:03 AM
Good find.

Funny :-)))
Not too much I can comment on, I would have liked to have seen at least the first sign straight and flush with the top border. What's the white strip right at the top?
