are quite right, John. Logically it should be: Push, do not ride,
your bicycles through the underpass, if the underpass crosses
a road beneath the expressway or motorway. I understand that the
rationale for this instruction is that it would be too dangerous
to pedestrians if cyclists rode their bikes through the underpass.
signs can sometimes be confusing, often because they are too concise.
Can you work out the intended meaning in the following:
- CATTLE CROSSING
(a) drive carefully because when you go round the next bend, you
will see cattle crossing the road in front of you?
(b) drive carefully because when you go round the next bend, you
will come to the place where cattle sometimes cross the road?
