Mystery Sign

So, there I was walking around the waterfront, when suddenly I came across this massive sign. This thing is the size of a small continent… OK, a very small continent… like St Martin in the Caribbean. Yes, I know it’s an island, but this isn’t a lesson about Geography, so just go with it!

I think signs are great and I always try to obey them, but you usually need to know what they actually mean. So, could somebody please tell me what this one means?


I think it’s a wheel with chains around it stuck in an aqueduct. I know they put chains around their tyres in Canada when they drive through snow. I don’t think they have any aqueducts though. Come to think of it, we don’t have snow or aqueducts in the waterfront, so what is this sign doing there?!

I think the government fell for some prank call. It was probably late one night and they called into one of those TV shows, you know the kind:

“…but wait, if you call now, we’ll also throw in a couple of free road signs!”

That must be it, we have surplus Canadian road signs strategically placed all over South Africa… I’m officially taking suggestions for this sign, and if you come across some weird ones, send them through to us!

C-Dawg over & out

    I think it has to do with the tyres that surround the inner walls in the harbour, if i remember correctly, they chained to to the sides (those funky old seals chill on them sometimes).

    But If I took a strange guess. It could be a bloodshot eye ball? šŸ˜›

    If you ask me, I’d say it means all tyres without cars attached to them should be chained down as they could roll out of control and perhaps bump your drinks over. Makes sense.
