In our continuing series of curious signs, here are some new entries:

Notice it doesn’t say checked or monitored, but enforced! So if I go 15 miles over the speed limit, you gonna take me out? Beware of drones in the skies over Virginia, a state filled with military. Maybe they understand this sign better than I do. 

On a lighter note, somewhere near Richmond somebody blacked out the letters I, R and C, leaving a sign that reads Speed Limit Enforced by A Raft. Good luck with that!

Bill's Honeymooners Gun Shop near Keyser, West Virginia, must be for the truly unimaginative newlyweds. Start off with a bang! Maybe some frisky honeymooners shot off the B and I in Bill's?

Again, a Virginia sign. The kiss-and-ride concept may extend beyond the Metro system serving Washington DC, but I’ve never noticed it anywhere else. A kiss& ride is  a drop-off spot for commuters using rail in and out of the city. Nice concept and cute sign. My only question is, if I don’t have anyone to drop me off, do I still get a kiss?

Yeah! You bet I’ll give a moose right of way! Better keep my eyes open for bony kneecaps, because that’s all I’ll see from two feet off the ground in my sub-compact car. How tall are meese? 10 feet! Geez, Louise!

I love this sign. So quaint. Look at what these kids are doing. How many children do you see on trikes or training wheels? Those were the days! Unfortunately, I’ve never seen children playing anywhere near this sign. Do kids even play outdoors anymore?

This charming message stands in front of one of the greatest drive-ins you’ll ever find.  Wahoo's took a serious hit in the recent flooding but what’s left of it is on Route 9 in Wilmington, Vermont.

Political nexus in western Virginia.

Oh, fun! We're headed out on a road trip to DC for a museum run; if I see any good signs, I'll send them on to you.

In Alaska, we had Moose Crossing signs everywhere. We needed one in our driveway, actually. When they found their way onto the Glenn Highway north of Anchorage, they'd freeze in the road, stopping all traffic. The cops would have to come with a moose horn.
