Strange Road Signs

I'm surprised that's still there!
There's a similar one on a footpath less than a mile away too!
 
In Scotland, last week, we saw warning signs (triangular/red borders)

Otters Crossing (think this was on the A9, between Dingwall & Alness??)

Red Squirrels (Tufty needs to teach the youngsters nowadays?)

And, my favourite, which would make a great name for an 'indie band'
Feral Goats (actually., with 'For Next 2 Miles')

Sorry no photos, as traffic/roads didn't really allow stopping, or safely walking back to the points in question
 
We saw this on Saturday, when we drove past
Traffic precluded a stop

So, I've been back today

A64
On what to me is York Road, although locally, it may be Leeds Road?
However, it was the Tadcaster & Halton Dial TurnPike Road (as several milestones state)

The sign is about a mile west of 'Bramham Crossroads' (although it's not been an actual crossroads since the 50s), it's where the A1 & A64 bisect

Can anyone explain a strangely coloured A road sign with black text on a yellow background, photo in this posting

Wow! That sign (or something similar) was there during the early 1970s when I was a student at Bangor!
You're kidding me! I was at UCNW from 1972 to 1975. I lived off Glanrafon Hill, and later in a village on Anglesey called Llanddaniel Fab. My only claim to any kind of fame is that I rode my motorbike at 5 times the speed limit past that very sign. (The Menai Bridge speed limit was 15 mph, but don't let that spoil anything.)
