In every state there are signs, street and otherwise, that make people scratch their heads as to what they could possibly mean. For example, there was a restaurant here that said it was open four days a week, Monday through Friday. Now, I am not a mathematical genius, but I am pretty sure that's five days a week. In the parking lot of a restaurant, side by side are two signs that contradict each other: Do Not Enter and Right Turn Only.
I live in the great state of New York, and we just make up meanings to signs as we go along. For example, the sign "No Parking on Sundays" may me you cannot park here this Sunday, but next Sunday is quite all right.
Have no idea what I am talking about? Have a look below at meanings of Signs in New York.
