Default Why the stupid highway signs?

Guardrail Damage Ahead:

Okay, well dang. I was gonna hit that one but somebody already beat me to it. Maybe I can get the next one.

Pass With Care:

Well crap. I was just going to pass grandma going up this hill but now I'll have to wait.

Loose Gravel:

That's it. I'm turning around and finding a road with tight gravel.

This Road May Flood

Yea, but it may not. And it's not flooded now. What to do, what to do.

What's the purpose of these signs other than some politicians brother-in-law is in the sign making business.

haha I've always asked myself why the heck they put up the guardrail damage signs.

I especially like the signs which some states have about running over construction workers.

"To avoid a $2000 fine please do not run over our construction workers"

lol I'm sure those guys feel great knowing the state values there life so much that someone will get fined a couple of grand if they get run over.

I still laugh when I see how TXDOT fixes most things: they run up and put a cone next to it. There, fixed. Off to the next one.

Thatís really the main one I have always wondered about. Cause it has no effect on me driving down the road.

The pass with care and loose gravel, I can see why itís there but common sense trumps that anyway.

New Mexico has spots where every change in the striping is marked with either a Do Not Pass or Pass With Care sign. Definitely a BIL deal, knowing the politics of that state.

In Montana where there are dangerous curves on long stretches there are no warning signs. At least not in a particular area in the southeast part of the state. Yet, I had no problem knowing to slow down and respond to changes in a careful manner. Never had any issues.

If they didn't warn the guardrail was damaged and someone idiot drove through it they would probably sue saying they would have taken a different route or something if they knew it was damaged. Sounds ridiculous but we live in a litigious society.

Possibly but actually TDCJ inmates make the vast majority of TX road signs.

I sorta appreciate the loose gravel warnings sometimes, as I hate dinks in the windshield & nice to have a heads up.


The ones that get me are those yellow 'suggested' speed limit signs to slow down on gradual turns where you can still see for hundreds of yards & no reason at all to adjust...bad enough as is much less the ding-dongs who think it's a posted limit.

The reasons:

Guard rail damage ahead: due to guard rail being struck it is no longer a crash worthy device so, we TXDOT warn folks of this. Generally guard rail is in place where there is a hazard off the road way.


Pass with care: well to me that’s kinda self explanatory, when passing wait for an ample time and don’t create a hazard while passing. Also it’s there to encourage drives to be friendly on the road way.

Loose gravel: we generally put these signs in place after we do routine road work because LRA type asphalt materials generally shell out a little gravel for a few days. It’s a simple warning to CYA.

The road may flood: because during flooding events we like to have signs in place before the flooding happens, so that when someone is driving hopefully they pay attention to such advance warning that the road may be flooding.

All these signs have been implemented due to some one getting hurt so now we warn to CYA. Trust me you would think that people would have enough sense to notice things but they don’t. That’s why on hair dryers It says don’t use while in shower.

The PASS WITH CARE sign should be installed at the downstream end of a no-passing zone if a DO NOT PASS sign has been installed at the upstream end of the zone.

Funny you should bring this up. We just got back from New Mexico, and my good friend and I were talking about the very thing and the first two that you mentioned!

The only time I passed with care was when I saw that sign. Otherwise, I just assumed I could pass without a care in the world and oncoming traffic be ****ed!

He stated that we had to turn around on the mountain road because there was guardrail damage ahead.

You are coming along quite well in your training to be a grumpy old phart! I'm very proud of you!

Putting up a guardrail damaged sign makes perfect sense. Have people take their eyes of the road and look for the damaged guardrail.

I thought passing with care was common sense. But I guess common sense isn't very common nowadays. We need a sign.

Loose rocks. Exactly how am I supposed to CMA? Drive in the ditch?

When I see water running over the road I don't need a sign to tell me it might be flooded.

Just funning with you. I appreciate the job you guys do.
