Lack of usability in old traffic signs

By | 2007-09-14

Old traffic sign with long description“By order of the goverment all carts that move on this street should exactly follow the direction that is showed in the drawn cart, otherwise they will be fined with 3 pounds” – From the Museum of Pottery in Barcelona.

Did anybody stop and read the whole text in those times?

    Probably they were travelling so slow they had a lot of time to read them, don’t you think?

    Accessibility could be improved, too, specially for those with dimmed vision.
