The Writings On the Wall: Funny, Clever and Odd Signs Seen on the Road

car covered stickers

One of the pastimes I enjoy on the road is taking photos of memorable signs – be it billboards, traffic signs, stickers, posters, neon or even just random scribblings on walls.

Some are funny (in or out of context), others clever, several just downright odd. Each pinpoints to a moment on the journey, working as a reminder of not just what we saw but also the vibe of that place. From abandoned garages in Alberta to philosophical insights in Oregon by way of Nevada desert, here are some of the signs that have caught my eye.
