Even after drivers education, I really thought the "feeder" rd. was a really long road that you could take from state to state because you saw it in ,uhm state to state.

There was a draw bridge we would drive over all the time, and at one end there was a big rotary. So everytime we went over the draw bridge I would see the big "Rotary" sign. I thought for many years "Rotary" was some strange term for "Draw Bridge". I was terrified of draw bridges, so seeing "Rotary" (there are a lot of those here!) just made me panic.

I believed that the interstate road signs that said "Exit Only" meant there was no way to get back onto the highway.

I used to believe that the STOP signs that had "All way" written underneath them meant that you had to come to a complete stop, as opposed the usual way - by rolling through it.

Road signs.
I used to live in a village called Par in Cornwall. Everyday i used to see signs saying

Par 2
Fowey 4
St Austell 7

I used to think that there were 2 Par's, 4 Foweys and 7 St Austell's.

I used to think that the handicap symbol was just a bunch of lines. I knew that it meant handicap, but I didn't really think about what it was. It wasn't until I was 14 that it clicked, "OH! It's a man in a wheel chair!" I never told anyone about my shame.

I used to believe the Do Not Pass signs on the roads meant you were'nt aloud to pass the sign. I was 14.

My mother and I used to go driving at night a lot (my father worked the night shift). She liked to go around and play "pretend" with me...like what kind of furniture would we have if we lived in that house? Anyway, this involved driving in many small neighborhoods where it's all Dead Ends and Cul-de-Sacs. Everytime I saw the sign "Dead End," I panicked. I envisioned an end to the road much like the cliffs in the old Wile. E. Coyote cartoons. I always thought "Dead End" meant...hear ya go...over the cliff...this is your dead end.

I used to believe road signs tell you the time, so 60 means 6:00 it always seemed really weird to me when i left the house at noon and like 1 minute later it was already 6:00, i thought i was hollusonating till in grade 3 i had a unit on road safety and signs. I asked the teacher about how the clock on a road sign works, she looked at me like i was an alien of some sort O.o

When I was younger growing up, there was a rollercoaster park named Cedar Point. Well the drive was 3 hours and as we approached it I would see signs "Cedar Point 3 miles" and even closer yet there would be signs that read "Cedar Point Left" and that sign always made me think that Cedar Point moved or left somewhere else and I was always disappointed.

I am one of those rare colorblind females. I have protanomaly, which causes me to see less red than a person with normal color vision would. Therefore, most shades of red appear to be orange to me.

Just today, I was in the car with my mother and she sped past a stop sign and nearly hit someone. It scared the hell out of me. So then I began to yell at her.

Me: You idiot! I almost pissed myself for a second there! YOU STOP AT THE BIG ORANGE SIGN THAT SAYS "STOP" ON IT!

Mother: Orange? You mean red...

And that's when she began laughing hysterically. To think I didn't know this for fourteen years... XD

My brother told me that the double yellow line in the center of the road was for motorcycles to be driven.

When I was about 11, My grandparents took me on a trip with them, along the way we passed a "DO NOT PASS" sign, my Papa said "DONUT PASS", for years, I pictured a donut shop with about fifty police cars parked all around it. Hey, I can't help it if I'm a slow reader!

I used to believe that the sign "To let" was to tell us there was a toilet there, but many had forgotten to put the "i" in the word.

Also, teh sign "police slow down" was actually meant "please slow down"

I always thought that the SOS signs and telephones at the side of the road meant 'Someone's Stuck'! I think it makes a lot more sense than 'Save Our Souls'!

when i was 6 or 7 I saw a sign that said "No Outlets" I thought that meant that there were no electrical outlets on the whole street!

When I was about 4, I used to believe that when traveling on a road that said dead end, you would die at the end of the road.

You know those blue and white service signs that say "H" for hospital? Well, for a short time my older sister worked at Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital, so I thought the "H" on the road signs stood for Helen Ellis Hospital, instead of just a regular hospital!

for years i read "turn left any time with care" signs as "turn left any time with car". And i wondered how else you would turn left, it seemed so crazy to me, having signs like that.

When I was a kid I thought the yellow road sign that says "Watch for Falling Rock" meant to look for an indian named Falling Rock, and one day I asked my dad "When are they ever gonna find Falling Rock?" :)
