29 Funny (and, sometimes downright inappropriate) Road Signs Proving it Really is About the Journey

Sharing is caring!

These funny road signs may actually prove that it’s about the journey, not the destination. The amount of ridiculous things I’ve seen on a sign while driving or traveling is amazing.
