All road signs are instructions of one sort or another.

For example, if you want to go to New York, you need to take the third exit off the roundabout ahead.

While a triangle with a red border indicates a warning and the instruction is, watch out and be prepared for...

I like this one, because I live in a city. Well, on the outskirts of a city.
I guess that's why the road planners put up this warning; there would be no need out in the countryside, where such slow traffic is expected.


We have a horse and cart warning sign just outside town. But unlike the authors of the article, I have seen horses being driven there a lot.

I have never seen that one, although I can think of at least one place halfway to the city centre where it would be useful.
Great choices! I've never seen a traffic 'warning' sign before.
Thanks. Nor have I, other than the one for horse riders, but I can see the value of it. People do get frustrated if they get caught behind a tractor; a bit of warning would help prevent that.
What a good choice for this prompt! I really like these.
Thank you.
Gosh - it is a very long time since I went through New York!

I really like both of these.
I just love the fact that it is there.
Thank you.
Great choices! I love the tractor sign particularly.
Thank you. It is fun, isn't it.
I'm glad I made you laugh.

And I imagine they are almost impossible to pass, being so large. They must almost block the roads.
And now I'm wondering how combines are moved around our smaller country lanes. Not that they would be as big as the ones you have in the US; even large grain fields over here are nowhere near the size of the ones you have there.
I don't know, actually. I kind of doubt it, because that would destroy the top soil.
The landscape of this country is totally a product of human settlement and for most of that time there were no machines so fields are human in scale. Of course, many field boundaries were taken down as agriculture intensified. I imagine a very big field in the UK cereal belt might be as as big as 100 hectares (250 acres) but up where I live a big field is probably about 10 to 15 acres.
Mind, I'm guessing most of that. *g*
