The Will Smith meme from YouTube Rewind (2018) has been making the rounds on the internet lately, so I thought I'd put a roadgeek spin on it.  :)

Where is this?

Nexus 5X

The sign and overpass are on I-95/MA 128 in Massachusetts. The road itself is somewhere in a completely different part of the country; I think we figured that out once, but I can't remember.

I think it might be Sweden, because the car and driver are from there:

I saw an article yesterday on Mashable about a "driving in" meme that shows Tweets of ASCII art roads and billboards from different areas.

Having driven several thousand miles in Mexico, I wasn't aware they idiot-proofed their highways.

Overuse of signs, such as four-way stops when unnecessary, things that should be common sense like "bridge ices before road", etc., so that drivers don't treat the signs seriously.

You can thank the lawyers for stuff like that.  Before we can adopt the Geneva Convention for signs, we need to seriously overhaul our legal system.

Is the Geneva road sign convention, in comparison, really less idiot-proof? Seems that we use very similar road signs, with the designs being the major difference.

For example, the UK has a common law legal system (akin to the US, Canada, Australia, NZ) but uses Geneva-style road signs.

There are dozens of them.  Most people refer to them as "posts", though.
