This photo of a street sign in Santa Fe, New Mexico was taken (and just sent to me) by alert reader Doc Bill.
No comment necessary.
This hopefully links to one of my favorites in Colorado Springs :-)
Slight correction – the Colorado Springs dead end street is actually Exodus Point.
That’s pretty funny too, as it says “No Outlet”.
Thanks for the link – I should have thought of streetview!! :-)
The Exodus Way sign in your image looks pretty realistic. Did the City change it in the meantime?
Sorry for the confusion Johnnie. When I saw Doc Bill’s picture, I was reminded of the street in Colorado Springs. I am currently in Europe and do not have an image of the COS sign, so I went to google images and found the Exodus Way sign. I thought that it was the actualy sign, but it must be from another town because I remembered that the COS dead end is Exodus Point that has the “No Outlet” attached rather than the “Dead End” – I don’t know the location of the Exodus Way sign, but believe that like the COS sign, it is real – and equally hilarious :-)
Did a quick check on google maps and it looks like the Exodus Way sign is from Greer, South Carolina, where the cross street is Mt Lebanon Church Road.
I swear I’ll never again complain about street signs being confusing.
DocBill – do you mind if people like me who have a slight nasty streak use your photo as an avatar at certain blogs we might post to?
I wish we had those dead end signs where I live. I have to drive by a street called “Christian Life Way” about 6-8 times a day and it always irks me that the state put up signs with that on them. It dead ends into a church parking lot, so “dead end” would be appropriate.
I have to go to that church to vote and always wear my “ATHEIST” shirt. Gotta fight fire with fire.
Gotta fight fire with petrol.
For those not used to American road sign conventions, the significant point seems to be the small yellow patch labelled “Dead End”. I missed it the first time, because the corresponding sign in my general driving practice is a separate large primary colour “T”, standing for “no through road.” Like this
There is a Gatling Gun street in Austin, TX. Off 290 there is a Recto drive. Recto means straight in Spanish, and there it goes in a big curve.
There is a report of a sinkhole near Tampa that swallowed a man. Just after I saw this post, I noticed the street name was Faithway.
The caption to the picture:
A 100-foot sinkhole opened up under this house on Faithway Drive in Seffner, Fla., trapping a man who was asleep in his bedroom.
I live near Santa Fe and have seen the sign a couple of times and now it is really inspiring to see it on WEIT.
For those of you who do not know: Santa Fe means ‘Holy Faith’ in Spanish. And many express their faith by putting crosses all over this beautiful state to indicate the location of fatal car incidents.
