I think the sign is mainly aimed at tourists who aren't use to driving on gravel roads. I passed a rental van that had rolled a few km up the road.

I don't mean to offend anyone but to those of us who know what mentally challeged is... Well you get the sign? In a jokingly way one could say, "aww, that's so sad."

This sign to warn for track forming in Poland is also quite funny:

I don't think the Greeks caught on to that. They're simply showing the unit (metre) in both English (m) and Greek (µ - the Greek alphabet's equivalent). A capital M would have worked in either language, though it may be bad form. Which brings up a question: how do they differentiate between a millimetre and a micrometre/micron?

I guess the above sign was implemented to help the traffic flow during Hajj. I think everyone know about this Islamic pilgrimage event. During Hajj, Muslims from around the globe come to Mecca, and if you are just a tourist, you don't want to find yourself in a multi-million crowd of pilgrims

Only Muslims are allowed to enter Mecca and Medina, because they are considered the holiest cities in Islam.
