Lesson 3 on British Signage

A "way out" sign, such as this one in the London Underground station at Kings Cross, tells of a suggested escape route. Why they don't always use normal exit signs, I don't know.

This sign in Birmingham is here to tell pedestrians that they were going the wrong way.

This sign below warns that if you go into an abandoned mine shaft, for example, you are liable to be struck by a huge bolt of cartoon lightning . . . and killed. Learn more about this sign and "Meet Dave from the Danger of Death Sign" here.

Review signs for a railway station Lesson 1, and signs on the English Motorway Lesson 2.
