Ahead Stop

Is it just me, or does anyone else read these things backwards as well? Of course, I'm sure that this is meant to be read as "STOP AHEAD", and I'm sure that many clever people are able to read it as such, but I can't ever seem to read these painted messages any other way than left to right, top to bottom. Therefore, I'm constantly having to readjust my brain, telling it that "AHEAD STOP" really means, "STOP AHEAD", which provides adequate time for an accident to occur.

When you think about it, is it really a good idea to have people looking down at the road, trying to read a cryptic message while operating a motor vehicle? It seems to me that the highway department (or whoever is in charge of such lunacy) is just asking for trouble with these things.

I dunno...I've never had this problem like you do. When I am driving, I don't read the words on the road 5 miles ahead...I wait and actually read the words AS I'M DRIVING OVER THEM, ya know? That's the point, right? :P

LOL - I read those "signs" the same way that you do! ;)
