Road signs in India: "Drive your vehicle like playing a harp"

Drive like a harp road sign

Traffic signs in the UK that warn drivers of the importance of concentration are sombre and serious. However, the writers of these road signs peppered across the Indian mountains have chosen to take a more creative, sometimes humurous and even philosophical approach:

  • Curves are blind and sharp, drive your vehicle like a harp
  • You may not be superstitious but believe in traffic signs
  • Divided attention equals multiplied troubles
  • After drinking whiskey, driving is risky

With their rhymes - and at times, confusing messages, these signs are guaranteed to make the driver pay attention to the road.
