unfair warning

There are plenty of entertaining road signs drifting around in cyberspace, many of them confusing or just stupid, but this one is actually different--it warns of of something that might happen, but no amount of driver diligence can prevent it. If the airplane is going to ricochet off the roof of your car, then that's what the airplane is going to do, and proceeding with caution is not going to change that.

This clearly falls into the category of unfair warning.


  1. That is, unless, the sign sits adjacent to the runway and is warning unwary pilots that a parking lot resides at the end of the tarmac.

  2. I didn't think of that--I just assumed the car was moving. But still--a low-flying airplane is a problem that can't be solved from the ground.
