In the rural area where my father lived when I was a young child, the areas of the road where the solid yellow center stripe indicated that it is was unsafe to pass the car in front of you were also marked by signs that declared DO NOT PASS. When I got old enough to read I was horrified to think that we were breaking the law over and over by passing these signs that clearly forbade it, but how else are you supposed to get where you're going?

When I saw a road sign that said no outlet that it ment the houses there didn't have electrical outlets. I believed this until I was about 11 and mentioned to my grandma how it must suck to live with no electricity when the next street over had it. I felt pretty dumb when she explained it ment the road was a dead end

When I was little I use to believe that the highway signs "Park N Ride", for car pools, meant that there was a place to park ahead and go on carnival rides. I use to beg my parents to stop for the "carnival" and they would look at me as if I was crazy! I still get a kick out of those signs.

When I was younger I thought the traingular "No Passing Zone" signs meant that you couldn't drive further than that sign. Every time we drove passed one i would thinkg to myself "well we just did!"... with a so-there attitude.

When I was a single digit youth, I used to believe the signs on the freeway that stated "Highway Patrol Next Exit" mean't there was an officer waiting to catch people at that exit.

I always wondered why they were telling the motorist if they were trying to catch speeders.

the Traffic signs point up (as up ahead) meant straight up litterally...I always looked up at nothing rather confused, my dad let it last as long as he could becuase it made him laugh so hard :)

That if you followed all of the "One Way" signs that it would get you to One Way Products. My dad works there, and there are a lot of one ways streets, and at the time the logo was the same

When I was young and we would go by these signs that said "pass with care" and I would always make sure I cared about that spot and when we passed the one that read "do not pass" that we were trespassin on someones land. I beleived that for a long time then I finally asked. What a relief lol

When I was little I found out what an electrical outlet was. SO when I was a little girls every time my mother drove by a street with a sign that said, 'No Outlet' I would cry because I felt bad that the people down that street had no electricy. 'No Outlet'

I can remember driving down the road with my family, when i was very young. I panicked, and asked my dad to turn around quickly, in the car. When he asked why, I stated that the sign on the side of the road said "DO NOT PASS". I thought it meant not to pass the SIGN! :) : ) :)

Whenever I would be travelling with my parents, I would always see this road sign, "100 Maximum"...I used to think this place called Maximum must have been a really neat place since no matter where we were, it was only 100 kilometers away! :)

I used to pass a sign on the way home from school that read Caution Blind Drive . I wondered how they could drive and why it was a problem in that particular area.
