Broken: Pranked street sign

SignqJen Hough sends in a picture of a sign taken in Seattle, Washington:

I saw this modified parking sign on 14th avenue that had the word "questioning" pasted on top of "parking."

This was actually the work of a pranksters who occasionally modify city signs.

[Funny or not, it's illegal - don't try this at home, kids :) -mh]


Let's pretend this is in 'just for fun' to save some whining.

Fix TIB! Support IE!

Hey, I live on 14th. How close to me is that? (i.e. what's the other cross street)

if you park they can't question you

You must only answer by saying, "You broke the law."

I think it may be an initiative sponsored by the government.

'No questioning at any time!'

So now it means you can conduct any kind of activity on that street corner and the police can't question you? Cool.

Awww, Mark, I just went out and pranked one of those signs before I read your little note at the bottom...

If you ask about the sign, you get fined. It is how the government makes money. I mean, you would be the richer than Bill Gates if you got all the money from those signs. However, "do not read" signs make more money.

Some of you had better grow up.

I remember a stop sign being swiped as a prank at 43rd and Meridian Streets in Indianapolis some years ago.


Lots of laughs!

3 dead.

Sorry. Forgot how many injured.

Anybody remember the silly prank in Cleveland where No Parking signs were swiped?

They weren't as important as a Stop sign. Right?

That only caused the Cleveland Fire Department extra response time (Check the Plain Dealer files).

Ain't it a lot of HaHa's kids?

So placing a sticker on a sign is going to cause 3 people to die? Give me a break. If there's anyone who's stupid enough to not recognize the meaning of that sign, even with the alteration in place, they deserve any tickets they get.

Huh? People actually go out spending money to create stickers to paste on traffic signs? Thats wierd!
