Please Sound Horn

Private Road in Orange County, NY.
It is my understanding, on roads that have no jurisdiction by the State, County, Town, City or Village, are “controlled” by a committee of those who reside on these roads. Signage is created to suit the needs of these communities.


Slow Blind Curves


Slow or With Caution Single Lane Road

DIYDPW is a frequent blog post highlighting global examples of Do It Yourself Department of Public Works projects. These are defined as any examples of municipal signage or infrastructure, generated by citizens outside of state-sanctioned means, that fulfill a perceived need in the area within which they are installed. It focuses specifically on street signage and way-finding graphics, and we take contributions from our readers! Got a photo of a great handmade or otherwise DIY sign that fixes a problem the local municipality had otherwise overlooked? Send it our way. Email (include a web-ready image and location found) to DIYDPW at gmail dot com
