Beware triceratops crossing, safety sign warns

A safety sign in Wigan is urging motorists and pedestrians to watch out for an unlikely creature venturing across the road – the humble triceratops.

Jokers have vandalised a warning sign on a bridge at Ashton Road in Golborne, Wigan, Wigan Today has reported.

It was originally a 'weak bridge' safety sign but some creative licence has been employed and the safety sign has received a pre-historic, pre-health and safety makeover.

Instead of a safety sign warning motorists the bridge is weak, those passing see a picture of the extinct Cretaceous beast as they cross the bridge.

However, the local council has warned the serious undertone to this should not be overlooked.

Kevin Hargreaves, Wigan Council's traffic manager, told the news provider: "There are serious implications that could result following the vandalism of any traffic sign.

"Many signs provide advice and warnings related to road conditions and, in this case, the structural capacity of a road bridge.

"We will be replacing it as soon as possible and would urge members of the public not to tamper with them for very obvious safety reasons."

Those concerned the sign may in fact be real should rest easy, as dinosaurs became extinct some 65 million years ago.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19906623-ADNFCR
