The Budget Cut Solution...
It’s just crazy enough to work.
Reading warning signs takes all the surprises out of road travel.

Today? If it isn’t in L33T (leetspeak) most of the drivers won’t give any credence to it anyway.
Man, that’s the beginning of the longest Burma Shave advertisement ever…
Our tax dollars at work…Burma shave signs were spaced so that you didn’t have to slow down to read them…Burma shave
Jo Clear, yeah, those were simpler times…Back then people didn’t shave while they were driving…
Gee, I wonder if anybody here remembers any classic Burma Shave signs…jus’ axin….But if I were to take a guess…
Gives a whole new meaning to “speed reading”.
Speed “checked” as in “limited”, not “checked” as in “measured”.
Saw plenty of Burma Shave signs driving across MO in the ‘50s. I think one was, "Don’t make love by the garden gate ‘cause love is blind but the neighbors ain’t.
One of my favorites is one they did not use.
Listen birds.These signs cost money.So roost a while.But don’t get funny!
Some one in the ad department got cold feet.
And one I can personally identify with:In this world.Of toil and sin.Your head grows bald.But not your chin.
DON’T PUT YOUR ARM OUT THE WINDOW TOO FAROR IT’LL RIDE HOMEIN ANOTHER CARBurma-Shave
AT INTERSECTIONSLOOK EACH WAYA HARP SOUNDS NICEBUT IT’S HARD TO PLAY!Burma-Shave
Got a million of ’em!
Who has time to read signs while they’re smoking, texting and eating lunch?
From my grandfather’s farm in OH: Men with whiskers ’Neath their noses Out to kiss Like Eskimoses Burma Shave
On a more limited basis.See Rock City.
I set up a camera on my front porch, all I got was a a back shot of a guy taking a dump….nasty tho…
Ben met Anna.Made a hit.Had a fight.Ben Anna splitBurma Shave
Worked in Italy!
Reading speed increases with familiarity!
Gee, now can drive my 57 VW wit pleasure…..
This would work. Ever notice how much traffic slows when the message changes on the lighted highway signs.
The tea cons will fall for it.
I’d like to thank you allEach and every oneYou rose to the occasionAnd ya got ’er done!BURMA SHAVE
There’s a sign a couple of miles away from the Agricultural Inspection station in CA on I15 that has so many words that it is impossible to read it even if you do slow down. It describes the laws in CA regarding importing fruits and veggies. While moving from Victorville to Vegas, I managed to read this sign about 1 1/2 lines per trip. It took several months to get it all.
From a local history book, put up by concerned citizens:If the Highway DepartmentDoes not fixThis crooked roadOf floating bricksWe’ll vote them outOf Politics!The book points out that the road has long since been replaced by a four lane, fully controlled freeway.
Just made this one up. :)
You guys are bad!
But I’m not sad!
You made me grin!
Above my newly shaved chin!
Road side signs always made me laugh. As a teenager driving across Canada on the Trans Canada Highway in the 70s I remember seeing signs in Manitoba warning that “ORBIT” was just ahead. These went on for about 20 miles until we finally got there. Check out the links
and here’s a pic
Also when travelling south to Myrtle Beach SC you had to drive by 75 miles of Pedro’s South of the Border signs. My all time favorite was “PEDRO’S FIREWORKS!!! Does yours?”
Can you still buy Burma Shave?
Those signs are actually dangerous because drivers take their eyes off the road to read them.
Anyone driven I-10 between Benson and Wilcox, AZ? Do you know what “The Thing?” is? Ever count the signs?
Yeah suuure , they slow down to read this but what about the guy behind them….can you say “whiplash” or “lawsuit”?
less than a week, and still no deal.
