Road signs are supposed to clarify rather than complicate matters for motorists. Unfortunately, some no parking sign postings come to take on a life of their own, such as the school parking signs posted outside a school in the Culver City neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA.

What if every city, state or county decided on its own the shape and design of its road safety signs individually?
