SLOW

Different from the Netherlands where you will see a traffic light when one lane is closed due to roadwork, in the U.S. it is often a man or a woman holding a sign saying SLOW (or STOP on the other side). This can't be an easy job to stand there, and it's not without responsibility either. I hope they are paid well for what they do.
The photo was taken in Yellowstone National Park, last month.

Linking to signs, signs.

  2. And a certain amount of agility so as to dodge the crazy drivers who ignore the sign. :-)

  3. Part of that definitely has to be boredom pay... it's got to be tedious at times.

  5. It's a job I wouldn't like to have. Standing still in all kinds of weather, and keeping alert, would be hard work.

  8. We also have these men. But if the work lasts for a short time or it is moving (for example, asphalt work). It may also be a length of time with long distance.

  9. Ja dat viel me ook op daar, dat ze dat met menskracht doen, moet een tamelijk vervelende baan zijn.

  10. Bieb heeft het al gezegd. Daar hadden ze inderdaad een boel van.

  11. I can''t imagine how much patience and inner strength is needed to keep holding a sign like this.
