I’ve been a driver for over 25 years & even before that I knew what most of the road signs meant, I think I just learned from being a passenger & I seem to remember when going on holiday with my parents we made a game of spotting different road signs.
Five of us have just had a week in Whitley Bay in Northumberland, Granddad Al, Mummy H, Jake, Grace & myself, whilst driving to go shopping in the town Jake started telling us what the traffic road signs meant & when it was safe to go at traffic lights & loved shouting Granddad it’s green you can go now!
He’d seen the no smoking one in the caravan and had told us it meant no steam, as in from a train, he’s a massive Thomas the Tank engine fan. We explained what it actually was & he was a bit confused as he had seen the lady in the next caravan sitting on the step having a cigarette.
He spotted the no entry sign & knew what that meant, so all good so far.
We saw speed limit signs & he knew them.
The one that totally threw us was when he said it means “No Boomerangs”.
Just think about it for a minute & you will understand what he means. We should have really corrected him, but he was so sure that’s what it meant, we didn’t have the heart to do so.
Has your little ones come up with any funny idea’s about signs that we take for granted?
