Right Driver

Stop unfashionably short trousers

These aren’t hipster-style drainpipes, and we definitely should stop unfashionably short trousers! This sign looks like it’s preventing a fashion crime, but it’s actually for a pedestrian crossing with a compulsory stop. The stop is for the junction just after the crossing. Of course, we have a stop sign, but our pedestrian crossing sign looks nothing like this. Kudos if you know which country it is from (the tree in the background gives it away a bit, too).
