Safety pointers from Pigeon Pointers – with a smile

March 8, 2010 at 7:02 pm | In Pigeon Point, Safety, Transportation, West Seattle news | 24 Comments

Two weeks into the North Delridge/Pigeon Point traffic re-routing/parking reduction required by a homebuilder putting in a sewer line along 23rd SW, new signs are up in PP, requesting detouring drivers’ consideration. Pigeon Point Neighborhood Council co-chair Jim Sander made the signs and sent the photos, taken by 6-year-old Tom Sander.

(Yes, Jim says, that second “Braveheart“-inspired sign is tongue-in-cheek.) The signposts are more often used to publicize upcoming neighborhood events such as PPNC meetings, but the slow-down reminders will be handy until the construction work is done, potentially another four weeks.

  4. OMG these are the best! Charming, fun, artistic, not cookie cutter, gets the point across, this is what a neighborhood who shares (and makes it fun) is all about in my book. Thanks for posting :)

    .

    Are the signs, for meetings and such, that normally occupy those signposts as clever and artistic as these two?

  23. I love these signs and the sense of humor behind them. They are a welcome burst of creativity on an otherwise uninteresting bus ride. How Seattle!

  24. I love the signs..the ‘r-tist’ and the photographer! A creative way to get the message across rather than boring ‘street signs’ we always see. A Mayor in the family would be fun…. And, looks like someone in the Blog would like to hire you….. Great job.
