The power of one.

Because the subject of our May Theme day is Numbers, the plan was a 2010 Soccer World Cup sign together with the new stadium in the background. While finding the half built stadium was easy - just follow the yellow steel cranes, there were no 2010 signs anywhere.

Instead this amended sign along the same road was rather amusing. Anyone who tries to "obey" this speed limit could have serious problems with their vehicle afterward, given the speed humps and construction going on here.

Below are the other City Daily Photo bloggers from around the world, who are participating in this month's theme day on numbers.

180 kpm is a mite bit fast for ANY road. LOL I think the highest legal speed here in Ontario on our super highways is 100 kph but of course lots of people travel at 130 or 140 kph.

Jilly said...

This is funny. Original choice to today's theme.

American Fork said...

I also get a chuckle when I see signs modified this way. I think you could really fly over that speed bump at that clip!!

Nathalie said...

Humorous catch!

Olivier said...

original et amusant ;o) si cela pouvait tromper les radars des policiers ;o)

original and fun ;o) if it could mislead police radars ;o)

Felicia said...

Very funny sign! I hope you didn't try to obey the sign. :)

Hyde DP said...

nice one

Jackie said...

Wow - you'd have a Dukes of Hazzard moment if you drove at that speed!

By the way, I don't know if you've got saved details over at my blog, but the link is misspelt (blogpot not blogspot) and always takes me to a rather mad Bible site instead of this blog!

Neva said...

I don't think I would try to go that fast......

Josy said...

Amazing what one little digit can do.

(This sure made me laugh!)

Rambling Round said...

I believe I had rather keep the front end of my vehicle aligned.

Ben said...

Second to Rambling Round. My car does not have a wing.

CrazyCow said...

Thanks for all the comments.

After thinking about it a little more and given the nature of the area, I questioned why the limit would even be set at 80km/h. In town our limit varies, but has a max of 60km/h on a straight flat road!!!

Having a very careful look at the sign, I see the graffiti artist has also filled in the 3 to look like an 8.

Jackie - thanks for letting me know about my link - I've left a new comment with the correct link, and will be more careful with my sticky keys next time.
