An Epic Fail sign of the times – Lake Macquarie City Council’s Gateway Policy.

Stranger Danger signs on our public toilets to ward off the Toilet Tanglers and make it safer for our kids?

Sure. PRICE?……WORTH EVERY CENT

Fish cleaning facilities for popular Wangi boat ramp behind Library?

Overdue.  PRICE?……..NOT TOO STINKY.

A pretty ordinary orange sign with prominent words LAKE CITY and a vertically sideways TORONTO to be read from the ground up?

HUH?…….PRICE?……………….$30,000.00……………..SPEECHLESS.

From the car this sign hardly attracts or rates a glance, nor does it quickly and clearly display its content to the target audience ie. those approaching Toronto by road from the north. Maybe those walking the park or in horse and cart will be a bit impressed up close. In my books, despite good intentions, this sign is an incredibly overpriced visual failure. For more background and a description which hopes to justify the cost, here is a link to the Lakes Mail newspaper and an informative article by David Quick: http://www.lakesmail.com.au/news/local/news/general/signs-of-success/2285273.aspx

Word for today:   INCREDIBLE:>>>>>>>>> Hard to believe.

More to come, same blog time, same blog channel.

    • I’m not against the signs, BUT $30,000.00 big ones each? As you say, is there gold inside? Thanks for visiting and commenting. Bruce
