How much is said and written about road rudeness in our country, but it seems to be indestructible: intransigence, aggressiveness - each for itself. And so I want to feel the atmosphere of respect and mutual understanding! Fortunately, at least the road workers are not alien to this and are making every effort to somehow brighten up the difficulties of the path along Russian bumps.
Here is an example of the scrupulous approach of Perm road services to their duties (photo 1). Imagine people in orange jackets measuring the area of repair work with a tape measure to the nearest meter. At the same time, it will be easy for the employees of the DRSU to report on the work done: knowing the length of the roulette, they can report on the implementation of the plan several years in advance by the number of measurements.
Creatively approached the manufacture of the “Dangerous Turns” sign in the Sverdlovsk Region (photo 2). Patronizing the driver, the road workers chose, godlessly violating GOST, to convey the "silhouette" of the road as accurately as possible.
Novation was also adopted in the capital, having installed on the way to one of the cemeteries the masterpiece shown in photo 3. But the driver now knows exactly the number of upcoming bumps.
At least one example in our selection from St. Petersburg that has already become traditional (photo 4). The text on the tablet carries a philosophical meaning. But do not get lost in speculation: in fact, its purpose is to warn drivers about the upcoming change in direction of the main road at the intersection.
It is curious that this sign precedes another masterpiece of the St. Petersburg "road kings", a year ago already featured on our pages (you can see it in the distance in the photo). For completeness, we present the picture again (photo 5).
