Sat Nav Signs

August 28, 2007

New signs have been made to show the fact you cannot rely on Satellite Navigation Systems on narrow roads in wales.

This was the original sign that was shown to warn drivers – and is crystal clear really.

No Sat Nav Sign

Of course, we’re a nation that wants to have images instead of words, and these images must also try and signify the message. So here’s the one that was designed.

When I first looked at this sign I thought it meant ‘No parking here in case a satellite falls on top of your car’ (like in a recent TV advert). It did not signify, to me, that it means sat nav is unavailable – but I guess from hereon in it will.

Surely, though, the red strike should be through the actual satellite and not the lorry…right?

    That sign means absolutely nothing to me either. Funny!
