Something not right here.....

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A West Australian School zone speed limit warning sign..... Hmmmm and a letterbox with a 6 month old newspaper sticking out of it... Someone is having a joke on passerbyers..... As the nearest school in a few hundred Km's away in Laverton....

We call that a townsite protection burn Lex :) One must keep the school and schoolkids safe!

Like their sense of humour...

I hope that you did respect the speed limit!

You are not supposed to decide whether a road sign is valid or not..

Good idea Caroline,, :). Francois yes we did & went looking for this mysterious school.. It does not exist out there... :)

"School Zone"? Must be an awfully long bus ride!

GasGasL€X on November 20, 2012

Thanks Gosiu :). John & Tom I think the school must be more like 200miles away from this spot.. Yes a very long ride in the bus.. considering there appears to be no homes anywhere in this area.. :)
