curious traffic guidelines

Angie was amused by some of what she saw while visiting Australia. I think it's safe to say that there must be a fair amount of confusion among drivers there!

good to know. I thought they were just suggestions!
Turn left AT ANY TIME with care.
If you wish to make a careless left turn,
you may only do so on Tuesdays and
Thursdays between 12 and 3pm.

"NOW" as in, "before you ram your car into the wall"?

"Pay here!" "No, wait! No stopping! DON'T pay here!"
(or pay while you're driving by? that might explain this:)

yeah, don't look for change in this case, because man, it's gone.

Undertaking? you have to stay to the right.

This one just reminds me of so many other wonderful tourist spots people have seen on their journeys . . . who would want to miss this amazing attraction?
Thanks, Angie!

It's funny cause I live in Australia and all of them make sense to me.

I'm not sure what you mean about the overtaking sign. We drive on the left side of the road. For a two laned road it's illegal to be in the right side of the lane unless overtaking.

I'm enjoying your blog very much. I could spend ages laughing at the signs.

We call overtaking "passing" in the U.S. ... so "overtaking" can sound a little "overwhelming" :)

Yeh, I guess it's what you're used to. I live in Australia and none of that seemed weird to me at all. Seem to be focussing on the wrong parts of the signs haha :)
