Humpbacked railroad crossing


I had never seen a sign like this before. So, naturally, I had to investigate. It seems the railroad crossing just ahead has a large hump; large enough to create a problem for a vehicle towing another vehicle.

Who'd a thought that would be a problem? Evidently it became a problem. Thus, the powers that be put up a sign. But try to figure out that sign going 35 miles an hour. Especially if you've never seen one before.

Seems like there should be some words of warning or telling the tow truck driver what to do like slow down, bump ahead. From the sign, it looks like it's just a warning of the railroad tracks.

Maybe you learn about this sign in Tow Truck School. Thanks for investigating...it really makes you say, Hmmmmhuh?

I like the look of these yellow-black signs. They just look vibrant in any backgrounds... Nice shot!

Hi Jacob,

I love it!
It's so interesting with this sort of 'special-made' signs for all sorts of things - like risk for cows on the road or kangoroos. When seen in Sweden, you just wonder-:)

About your question to me the other day:
Yes, I intend to give it to you-:)

Sorry for not checking in the last couple of days. I've been away for my mothers 70-years anniversiry. We went to Denmark by car, which takes 12 hours, then the party on Saturday and back to Sweden again yesterday. We were quite tired. But my mum was happy, and that's what counts.

Have a great day!

Best regards
Asta

Hi Asta - I wasn't pushing you...I just didn't want to not do something I should do...I'll await your "official" word...

I don't believe I've seen anything like it before either. That's pretty dangerous.

Interesting sign. I've never seen one before, but I'll keep an eye out now.
