Signs

There has been a lot of new signage cropping up around the island lately. Most of it downtown. I don't think they would do the average tourist much good though. As for me, I think they are great.







Not all of them are doing as well as others. I think this one got hit by one of the palms when they were moving them in.

I love this one. Since this has gone up, I've seen golf carts turn left, only to have to turn around and come back. And the one way sign should probably designate whom it is for. Certainly not for the tourists on golf carts and scooters. They just zip right on by it like it doesn't exist.
On a similar note, Saturday I was waiting for pedestrians to cross the street in front of 7-11. While waiting, the traffic cop came over and told me to put on my seat belt! A first! I was left wondering why though that he didn't say anything to the taxi driver behind me who did not have his on either. No big deal. I just unhooked my on the next block.

I've been there and done that on posts on strange signs on Isla. Thanks for sharing the new ones.

Love those! Thanks for sharing :)

Do you suppose since they are putting street signs up for streets that actually have names, that maybe they'll come up with a NAME for the street between our casas?? And then we could have a street sign too!

Funny that you complain about tourists so much considering you were one about five years ago and decided to settle in a higly touristed spot.
