I used to believe that the road signs that pointed up to indicate forward moving traffic were signs intended for airplanes. Naturally, since the sign pointed up, it meant for airplanes to fly up.

Written directly on the asphalt on the road that ran past my school were big letters written in white paint: GO CHILDREN SLOW. There were also two life-sized children painted in white beside the warning. I always thought that two children had been run over by a car on that spot and they just painted the flattened bodies to warn other children not to step out onto the road.

I was almost an adult before I realized the reason that almost all US cities have an "Access Road", or a "Frontage Road' in them, and they seem to be very long, and meander all over the place.

I used to believe that the "no hard shoulder" signs on the motorway meant you had to swap your seatbelt over onto the other shoulder! I can't imagine why.

I used to think that Wheeling (as in Wheeling, WV) was a kind of ramp, like a ramp to get to get onto an interstate. I don't know why but I just never thought of this as an actual city. I used to see road signs all the time while going to my grandma's for wheeling. I just assmed it was a special kind of ramp. I just learned that it was a city when I turned 13.

In our town there was a street called Broadway. While driving through a neighboring town, i saw another street sign deemed Broadway. I thought, Wow! I didn't know that road led all the way here! I didn't realize that a lot of towns have the same street names :]

When I was younger I asked my mom why you had to go slow past a school (school zones) and she told me it was in case a kid ran out in front of the car you would be able to stop quick enough to get out and spank them. I was VERY careful not get off the sidewalk when I was at school for a long time after that!

When I first started seeing the abbreviation BLVD. on street signs, I thought it stood for "beloved". I had not yet heard the word "boulevard".

When I was a kid and learning how to read about 5 or 6 years old. I remember being in the backseat (without a seatbelt or car seat or booster seat) and getting REALLY scared because my Dad kept passing signs that said "Do Not Pass." I really thought that you weren't supposed drive past that spot.

When I was about 4, I used to believe that the handicapped signs were for people with really big butts. My Aunt was in a wheelchair and she always parked there, so I didn't know the difference until I saw someone who didn't have a big butt (but they were handicapped) park there and I proceeded to tell them that they were not allowed to park there BECAUSE they didn't have a big butt!

We took road trips a lot when I was younger. I always looked out the windows and read thigns as we drove. I used to think that the signs "do not pass" and"pass with care" meant that we literally couldn't drive down that part of the road. I used to taunt the signs sticking my toungue out as mom or dad drove by them!!! It wasn't until my oldest sister started driver's training that I finally figured out what they meant!

When you saw the road signs for how curvy the road was ahead, I use to think that would be the way you would go to heaven if you were killed between that point and the next one. The speed limit under those signs was how slow you would travel to heaven.

When I was a kid we went on a road trip through the mountains in PA. All along the roads are road signs stating watch for falling rock. My dad told me and my siblings that the signs were there because along time ago when Native Americans lived there that there was on named Falling Rock. He was kicked out of the tribe for murdering the chief. After they kick him out they found out he didn't do it and went looking for him only to never find him. That is why the sign are there cause till this day he has not been found. Of course we believed him lol.

You know how signs pointing something in the direction of being right ahead have arrows pointing straight up? I thought that meant it was up in the sky and you had to make your car fly.
