This is a REAL sign outside of San Diego NORTH. Many people from Mexico have never seen traffic like this. The sign struck me as funny as I passed it.

While on my road trip from Los Angeles to San Diego we passed this sign. It is called the "road runners" sign. It alerts drivers to be careful, you never know when a running illegal migrant may be dragging his wife and child across the highway in search of a better life in Southern California, take caution.

Oh Lord haha! To be honest I didn't get it at first and I probably wouldn't even get it if I were driving and saw the sign. But now I know. Not that it matters here at the Minnesota-Iowa border. But I will be prepared.

This is a terrifying photo! It's like a family fleeing from a lava flow... or a giant hungry monkey on crack...

It took me while to get it at first too, good thing I was the passanger and the driver was well versed in southern california cautions and warnings. still bummed i didnt actually see anyone making a run for it.

I once spray painted "Brian is cool" on a bridge. It might still be there. First overpass north of Missouri Valley Iowa. On I-29.

Oh man, good times. About ten years ago. "glory days, yeah they'll pass you by....."

Not the same thing, huh? Oh well.

Yeah, I see those all the time coming back from San Diego. They are all over the 5 fwy. And I have seen people trying to run across the fwy too.

I think the first guy in the sign is a midget....Sorry, small person.

Its like real life frogger. they should set aside part of the freeway and make the migrants run it. If they survive they are welcome to my country to do thankless back breaking labor.

Exactly what do you think this sign means... "People Running Frantically Across Road" or perhaps..."Keep running Dorothy and friends, you are not in Kansas anymore and the cars move much faster here!"
OR "Slow down, people all trying to cross the finish line together."

I have never seen such a sign before but I am amused.

how sad.. the dude leading the pack is missing a foot :( it must be hard to run so fast with a kid in tow... so sad.

Sadly, the little girl's arm needed to be reattached to its socket shortly after the modeling session.

I actually saw that sign was I was in CA a while back. I thought it meant there was a shopping mall ahead with great sales and eager consumers.
