Somewhere in outback Western Australia

Roadwise have been putting up "Local Police are now targeting:" signs all over WA. They have a removable yellow section that usually says things such as; speeding, drink driving, seatbelts etc.

But lately I've seen and heard of some humorous 'alterations' to the signs such as the one pictured.

My personal favourite was "Local Police are now targeting Volvo drivers".

Listening to: The Shins - Oh, Inverted World

so, what have you got against volvos, huh?

[if needed: swedes take it as a personal insult when volvos are criticized. and i've got a british sense of humour.]

I'd take a volvo any day over my death trap!

Ah, 12 year old boys. Thank god they don't stay 12 forever.

I've got nothing against Volvos, just their drivers... and perhaps the old colour range... I mean 'sky blue' for a car colour, and what's with that beige?

I thought poking fun at Volvo drivers was a universal thing... maybe it's just Australian... or maybe it's just me (and the person who defaced the sign).

P.S. No offence to proud Swedes intended.

i think it is universal actually. to make fun of volvo drivers that is. i do it too. i was just having one of those i'm-from-a-small-and-inconsiderable-country moments. that and the need to show off my funny part ;)

It was changed to 'Sheilas with big tits' in the small town I come from.

Hmm I'll have to send a link to my ex - he was probably the person who put the sign up in years gone past! (former Roadwise staff member) My friend is the exec manager still. *chuckling* I'll send her a link for a laugh!
