That's about a year old, but still pretty funny.

I took this picture in Vienna on 30th October 2005! Could someone explain me that impressive row of forbidden stop?

It seems like stopping and parking is not allowed, except for certain license plates for disabled people with their locations indicated. Still, it looks ridiculous.

In Italy we have this incredible amount of street signs on bike paths: at any crossing road, private access, or anything, you'll see a couple of "End bike path/Begin bike path" which, in fact, turn the bike path into a non-path...

I've seen also a bike/pedestrian underpass with street signs: "dangerous curve", "5 km/h limit" and other silly things. I'll show you some pictures.

Well, sir, there's nothing on earth like a genuine, bona fide, electrified, six-car monorail!

Due to Photobucket f*cking up, most images won't be visibile in my old posts. If you need anything specific, please write me.

Certain road signs in Italy are very strange! Especially in the Southern part of our country.

In a narrow street in my borough once I saw written SOTP instead of STOP!

Lovely!

Also in Italy we have those type of parking lots. But it is only written on the road surface (in yellow paint)

@Fabri88: I have never seen so much sings for disabled people on the side of the road, anywhere in Europe.

That's an interesting detour sign. I guess it's explained on the large yellow sign behind it.
The yellow sign says absolutely nothing about the route. It only tells about this road being reconstructed and the company managing the works.

Riding in a wheelchair on the motorway at 80 km/h

A disabled man driving his wheelchair at 80 km/h on the BR-101, one of the most important highways in Brazil...

WTF is right. Either that was cleverly faked, or that chair has been heavily modified. It's distracting enough to see one going at normal speed down the hard shoulder of the motorway, it's even more distracting to see one doing 80 km/h.

The wheelchair is powered by a 125cc motorcycle engine. The "driver" had his legs and left arm amputated after suffering an electric shock. He himself adapted the engine to the wheelchair, wich is also equipped with motorcycle wheels on the rear. The police retained his wheelchair, months later a judge ordered it to be returned to owner after giving him a rebuke and he signed a document pledging not to ride on the highway with his machine again.
