Road works can be an inconvenience at the best time, forcing us to add a few minutes onto our journey as we’re diverted through back streets, or get stuck in painfully slow traffic jams.
But, as this sign shows, it’s also particularly irritating when you don’t know how long a particular road will be closed for, or if it will even be closed at all.
The sign, which should win an award for record-breaking levels of vagueness, reads: ‘This road may or may not be closed on or about May 22, 2012 for approx 3 weeks.’
Although the Canadian sign is almost three years old, hell hath no fury like an enraged motorist and it’s been shared thousands of times after a recent posting on Reddit.
We’d very much like to see how car owners reacted to this.
