Street Signs in Beijing August 20, 2006

Posted by NoWires in China, Technology, User interface, Wierd but true.

traffic-sign-1.jpgThis is one of the most famous logic-defying street signs in Beijing near the 2nd Ring Road that started to circulate on the Web a few months ago. Good luck finding your way to make a right turn. Numerous tales of drivers got lost or fined by the police for making a wrong move have filled BBS’s.

I was rather intrigued and went on Flikr for more strange street signs. Well, I wasn’t disappointed. Here, here, and here.

UI designers of the world, unite!

I love collections of odd signs… though this one makes me nauseated just looking at it.

There’s one special secret Sale link on Amazon:


[b]This is open every Friday and ONLY on Fridays! [/b]

You can find very good discounts here, although some Fridays you can really get
lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit – I´ve seen discounts there as low as 75%
off sticker Price.
