No Truck Turn. Gardiner, NY. June 2022.
Found during a recent detour thru the hamlet of Gardiner. The folks on this corner, placed some cones, surveyors tape and this handmade sign, in hopes that a delivery truck or tractor trailer wouldn’t take out the signs, trees or hedges on a residential road.
DIYDPW is a frequent, irregular 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.
