Thanks. I had put a link to the page instead of right-clicking on the picture itself and then "copy image location." I got it fixed now.

Edit: I didn't realize what you were saying, and thought I had fixed it, but it wasn't. I'm changing to Flickr. Thanks again.

This is my favorite weird road sign. Can you figure out what it's trying to say?

It says that upcoming traffic can collide with left turning traffic. However, it's not easy to interpreter when you're driving at some speed. In other words, these signs are completely useless.

Right. Specifically, there's a minor cross-road just ahead of signalized intersection. Through traffic may be queued up for the signal, but if the right-turn lane is free, a right-turning driver might hit an opposing car turning left onto the minor street. It's absurd to think that anyone could figure this out quick enough to do any good. (Dothan, Alabama)

This sign is commonly used in Bulgaria on national roads and expressways ( only on motorways i haven't seen it). Although i find it very strange,because it doesn't exist in any roadsign standard. I call it either "the black hole sign" or "the big pussy sign" .
Here in Bulgaria it is used to mark a dangerous stretch. In most of the cases there is a sign "Danger zone" below it , which makes it look even more weird )) )))
Furthermore, after certain kilometers of the "danger zone" there always is another sign saying " Thank you for driving carefully" )))

In most states you would see a sign that says something like "congestion ahead", or "turning traffic ahead". Makes clearer sense to me.

Ohio borders Michigan and Ontario to the north, Indiana to the west, Pennsylvania to the east and Kentucky and West Virginia to the south/south east. Metric signs are commonplace in border states.

Well, Ohio's border with Ontario is Lake Erie....

EDIT: But how much metric signage is there in Ohio? Certainly not much; I don't remember seeing any.

What danger? I think there are enough traffic signs to express "danger zone" Like:
