Default Weird Wyoming road sign - 07-09-2007 , 04:50 PM






Does anyone here live near NW Wyoming? On a highway in WY (I believe it
was HWY 20 up around Yellowstone), there are signs with the letter L and
three dots on them. One would have an upright L with the three dots, then
the L would be upside down w/ the dots, then the L would be backwards and
finally upside-down and backwards (repeating pattern). Does anyone know
what these signs are for / mean? They were kinda like cryptic HWY mile-
marker signs...

It sounds like they mark passing zones. Or perhaps alien landing
strips...

I think it means, " If you can read this, I'm upside down! Please turn
me over! " :-)

Sounds like something made to be machine/computer-scanned?

I remember my first trip to Canada. Right after the border there was a sign
that said "Orbit, 2 minutes". Then in the first town their traffic light was
flashing green, so I just pulled over and parked and went looking for a
native to ask.

("Orbit" turned out to be a Sputnik-looking roadside trash container. The
flashing green iirc meant traffic could go straight from either direction
but not turn.)
