Does anyone have road signs in their yard/on their property?
« on: September 03, 2020, 08:48:55 PM »

I don't, but are there two in the yard of my neighbors across the street - a STOP and a DEAD END.
Edit - To clarify, yes, I'm asking about active ones being used for traffic.

Like, live posted ones?

When I first moved in, there was only a Bike Lane/No Parking Any Time combo on the border between my property and my neighbors to the north. After I lived here a couple of years, the city added a Dead End on the border between me and my neighbors to the west.

I also have a bunch of signs in my house.

Are we only including ones that are actively being used for traffic control? There are a few members on here that have signs they have bought and placed them somewhere in their property (though not necessary visible to travelers).

If weíre talking about active ones, not currently, but two of the houses Iíve lived in have had stop signs. If in general, yes, I have quite a few, as Iím sure so many members of this forum.

Yes, although I'm not sure if they are actually on my property, or if they are on state ROW adjacent to my property.

When I was a little kid, I lived here.  The signage was different back then, but I specifically remember a driver not knowing the street was a dead end one night and plowing through the signs into the walnut tree.

I live on a uncontrolled intersection.  So I have street signs.  And because I live down the street from a high school, I have a no parking sign on one side as well.

Not exactly what I was asking about, but still very cool. I hope to start a shield collection one day.

I got what your intent was on the original post before you edited it but I thought it would be cool to sneak that in anyway.  I did have a stop sign and a yellow turn sign in my front yard in a Scottsdale but nothing active currently.

The one does not necessarily follow the other.  See above.

An urban corner, so yes it's controlled.

Still doesn't necessarily follow.  For example, are the examples below 'urban' enough for you?

Yes. We live on a corner, so we have a stop sign (blades are kitty-corner to us) and speed limit sign plus "end school zone" sign. There's also a newer parking restriction sign across from us for school pickup. Finally, there's a school crossing ahead sign with a handheld calling only "Cell Phone Use Prohibited" sign below that across from our driveway.

Not my current home in Tewksbury MA, but my first from birth to 1987. The speed limit sign was not there when I was a kid, but went in at some point during that time.

I completely borked that up. I meant to say "Cell Phone Use Prohibited" sign for the school zone.

Nothing in my yard (how do I explain it to the landlord?) , but the bulk of my collection is in my apartment with a few spares in storage.

The small apartment complex I live at has a traffic signal at its northwest corner which I can see from my bedroom window.

A correction.  When I mowed the lawn yesterday, I realized it is actually a two hour parking sign.

There is a stop sign on the corner in my yard. It's been knocked down a couple times, not by errant drivers, but by the snowplow.

There is a bump sign adjacent to my property, to warn of an upcoming speed bump.
