April Fool’s from the Boston traffic department

Today, a little media humor of the road-sign variety.

The streets of Boston are notoriously tortuous, poorly marked and filled with over-the-top aggressive drivers.

This street sign, reflective of the situation, always makes me laugh as I drive by. (There was a lot of honking as I paused to snap it due to the impatient nature of Boston drivers.)

While it’s pretty funny all by itself, what really cracks me up is that this sign suggests some order to the intersection ahead. The wary driver is not fooled:

  • There are only two lanes approaching this intersection.
  • There is actually one more choice, not shown.
  • Drivers can make any one of those choices from any lane.
