I recall several instances of roadside signage falling foul of Transit rules by being a distraction.
A danger that suddenly  becomes benign if a "Fee" is paid, as if that totally unrelated extortion suddenly transforms the danger to a negligible one.

Traveling this morning to Rotorua via SH 30 along the shores of Rotoiti this effort by a  complete moron seems to be at odds with its central message,

A road safety message that must compete with the equally moronic one, once situated near the top of the ridge between Takamatua and Akaroa  less than 3 Kms from the end of Highway seventy five, suggesting drivers pull over and rest.
The stupid is only exceeded by the waste of resources.

Transit NZ renowned for removing crosses on the side of the road making fatalities on the basis they constitute a distraction and now this ... priceless.

Bureaucracy vs common sense and bureaucracy wins every time but I'm sure the Snowflakes of this world will have a contrary view.

I've had a good laugh at that sign myself when I passed it. What were they thinking?
