I used to believe those "watch for Fallen Rock" signs were about a missing person.
I'd spend every road trip looking for him.

When my family went on long drives, I thought that the "Do Not Pass" signs meant that we were breaking the law every time we drove past the sign. I remember getting really nervous and looking for police cars.

Whenever we were out driving we would pass the signs saying " slow children" as they would want you to slow down. I being the kid i was, would eagerly look out the windows for kids moving in slow motion.

up until I took drivers ed I thought that the speed limit sighns showed the speed you were not allowed to go. this came from everyone slowing down when they saw a cop. I never knew that people allways drive faster than the speed limit.

i used to think that the "BEE ALERT! ARRIVE UNHURT" signs on the highway meant that there were killer bee nests around that area and you should roll your car windows up so they didn't sting you in the face.

I thought railroad crossing signs were Pinnochio. On our way to a movie when I was 5 we got stuck by a train. That was when my mother decided to tell me we were going to see Pinnochio. I thought the sign was him until I was about 7 or 8. Whenever we went past that particular crossing I'd say "There's Pinnochio Mommy!!" and she wouldn't argue. Just smile and nod.

When I was a child I thought the road sign "pass with care" meant the people that lived in the houses there were really poor and we should take the time to care, not just drive right by.

My dad told me when I was about 7 or so that the sign indicating a median is ahead (looks like a shoe imprint with an arrow going around the right of it) meant that there were pedestrians trying to cross the street ahead, and you had to drive real fast to avoid them.

When I was younger I would read the traffic signs on the side of the road but could never understand why we were passing the ones that clearly said "DO NOT PASS" - I finally decided it must mean going off the road onto the area behind the sign. Obviously I was wrong on both counts!

Ever seen a No Outlet sign? It means basically the same as Dead End. I used to think it meant all houses on that road have no electric outlets because they must not have power.

While stuck in construction traffic, I asked my dad when the construction would end. He said he wouldn't live to see the end of construction.

Not understanding the sarcasm, I thought he was dying. My mother put me straight later that day when I told her Dad was gonna die.

On some midwest highways they use white signs with a bold black plus sign to indicate an upcoming intersection. My dad used to tell us this meant the road was positively charged. I could never find any negatively charged roads.

I used to look for an Indian along the roadside because of signs that stated
"watch for fallen rock"

Whenever we passed "No Passing" signs I thought we were breaking the law so I always got scared and started looking for police. I never told my mom even after I figured out what they really were until about a year ago and I'm 22.

When we drove to visit my grandmother we always got on the highway by turning left near a "No U Turn" sign.

I always thought my dad was going to get arrested because I thought it meant "No You Turn," as in "No Turns Here" (apparently I thought the Sopranos wrote all our street signs).

My younger sisters used to believe that the "slippery when wet" road signs meant that snakes were following your car

I used to believe that, in Germany, there was a major city called Ausfahrt, because of all the signs on the autobahn with that word on it. Ausfahrt is German for "exit".
