Amusing UK Signage Graphics Part I: Moving About

I just now realized I have too many of them to blow on one blog post, so this will be the first of 3 in a series.  Here we go!

identical, save for the arm.)


One could almost read this as "No Stopping!"

Do you notice this sort of thing when you travel, or is it just me?
