Enjoy It But Not While On The Wheel
So, last week, when we took an overnight trip to Pangong Tso, the ‘enchanted lake’ that borders China, we saw these funny yellow signs everywhere reminding us not to die while driving. Some are straightforward signs that you might see anywhere (maybe…) and others show that kind of creative genius we can only now associate with the good people at India’s Border Roads Organization. Too few road sign makers try to include sexual puns in their signs, right? And we thought the art of sign rhymes was all but lost!
Here are our favorites by category. LET US KNOW WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE!
And also scroll to the bottom to see pictures of beautiful Pangong Tso.
Just to show that they have range, the Border Road Organization likes to remind us of the straightforward things to remember while driving.
But BRO also knows that a rhyme in time saves nine (that’s the expression, right?). I think the couplets really make the danger hit home.
I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE…
If all else fails, what work better than a good ol’ fashioned guilt trip?
The ones we will remember forever are the ones that make absolutely no sense. Some are *this* close to delivering meaning, but others simply don’t make the attempt.
We only included one of these, but BRO wants you to know that, as fantastic as we think their signs/roads are, they are already well aware.
To Pangong Tso We Go
Located about 5 hours southeast of Leh, over high mountain passes, along twisting mountain roads, Pangong Tso (Lake) is a relaxing and beautiful retreat from the activity of Leh, and one of Ladakh’s most popular destinations for overnight trips. Check out some photos and videos from our recent trip to Pangong Tso!
