Damaged Signs

Not sure how this could have happened: the one way sign and one of the street name signs are noticeably bent, but the rest of the pole is fine. A snowblower mishap, perhaps?

That pole is very close to the corner:  I'm guessing the bent signs are a mere 30 cm or so from the street.  Furthermore, the sign that isn't bent is the highest of the three.  If I were a betting man, my money would be on a truck having hit it.  However, the only direction traffic comes from at that location is eastbound on Saint-Joseph, which is to say the damage appears to have been done in a direction that no traffic goes.  Maybe a pharmaceutical truck was backing up to park in the 30-minute zone and make a delivery?

I'll be honest with you, Saint-Dominique being one way from Saint-Joseph is a suggestion. I've seen ten times as many wrong way drivers on Saint-Dominique as on any other street combined. As for why the signs are bent, who knows. As I said, people drive like shit here, so I wouldn't be surprised if a delivery truck for whatever is in the building decided to back up in them for some reason.

One I saw today: a badly peeled QC 175 shield in Lévis.

On MD 32 SB approaching I-97 (https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10219659456757465&set=a.10219659690883318) (though I am sure plenty like seeing it missing  :sombrero:)

and the sign on the right was damaged years ago.  The bottom half was torn off and replaced with non-button copy.

The I-95 and 278 shields look absolutely ancient.
Might as well face it, pooing is cool

So, a year or so ago, I saw this assembly on a side road in Sorel-Tracy:

It was already all bent up from people clipping the corner. But I went back to that intersection today...

...and it was in an even worse shape. There was caution tape with the MTQ logo on one of the poles, so it's safe to say that these oldies will be gone once the snow melts.

This sign on I-65 at US 412 in Tennessee apparently decided to fall over:

As it's the one right at the exit, TDOT currently has a small, temporary orange "EXIT <arrow>" sign just beyond it.

I don't have photos, but a whole slew of BGSs along TX 288 collapsed in the wake of Hurricane Beryl. Also the street blade for my street is nowhere to be found.
