Looking for a good laugh? Sometimes all you have to do is hit the road to see some hilarious VMS boards, traffic control signs, parking restrictions and more. We've put together a list of a few of our favourites!

1. 5am onsite starts can lead to an interesting sense of humor

At PlantMiner we believe in the importance of signs, regulations and onsite safety. Although these signs might have missed the mark we've created a free risk assessment checklist to help ensure you cover all your bases on site. Need to manage activity on, off and around your construction site? Hire a VMS board or traffic control equipment through PlantMiner.
