Signs of all kinds ...
No Entry For Sellers
This Poxy Donzere Housing Estate Does Not Want Any Door To Door Salesmen..
The french love making their felings clear with signs, this piece of visual pollution is supposed to dissuade any potential door to door salesmen (do such people even still exist these days ??) from even thinking of entering this estate of 12 bungalos, which isnt even an 'exclusive' one in a generally run down village od Donzere, 10kms south of Montelimar(26)
Is This A Zone For Freestyle Surfers ? or Warning Of Dangerous Dam Currents ??
Much of the french river system is dammend for the hydro-electric system (which doesn't unfortunately reduce the number of nuclear installations ..)and so can cause serious changes in river levels for unwary swimmers etc. But it could also be a new form of non-board using wave surfing ? anyone willing to try ? where are the dangerous sports nutters when you wish to see someone seriously injure themselves ??
Non drinkable water tap
Once France Had Numerous Water Pumps For Human Consumption....?
This sign is becoming more and more commonplace in france, sometimes its true the water isn't fit for human consumption 'non-portable'. But more often its a question of the town mayor economising for local taxpayers, as by law he has to have all public water outlets tested for purity 2x a month, so its cheaper so put a sign up and consumers take their own risk !
Toilet Humour !
