I was waiting forever in heavy traffic on Norfolk Street to turn onto the Williamsburg Bridge when I noticed this sign. It seems pretty old (I’m sure that crossed circle was once red), and the more I thought about it, the more I decided that it has to be the most abstract official traffic sign in the city.
Seriously, look at the freakin’ car, man. There’s no way in hell that would get approved nowadays! Is anyone else vaguely reminded of Ralph Steadman, famed illustrator of Hunter S. Thompson books?
Like, if you were to look a little further down in the above picture, that’s what the front of their car would look like?
