Apparently we need to have a conversation about the above photo. Granted, that sign is from Australia but it’s the same thing regardless of which way the arrow is pointing or what side of the road you drive on.
That my friends is a sign pointing to an area off the side of the road for polite slower drivers to get the bloody hell out of my way when I’m driving to work. “Slow Vehicle” does not just mean dump trucks, semis, tractors, and the like, it also means the elderly, sunday drivers, 16 year olds that just got their license, vacationers checking out the scenery, or anyone else that insists on driving below the speed limit.
In other words, if there is a car behind you and you feel it necessary to drive slower than I could walk to work, pull over, that way I can get to work and you can enjoy your panic stricken or leisurely drive through the mountains.
