aggressive road signs

make sure you see and obey
  [vote for,

Speed limit signs could swing down on pivoted arms, so they are at the eye level of oncoming drivers. The sign could come down a fixed distance ahead of the driver, or immediately after the preceding vehicle, whichever is less.

The sign retracts a moment before the time at which the vehicle's windscreen would have reached the sign had the vehicle been travelling at the limit. A metal tooth mounted at the bottom of the sign protects it from being hit by the intact windscreen of speeding vehicles.

       Seriously, a spritz of murky water and a sudden loud honk could do the trick.

       Look up from the mobile, get shocked by a road sign, lose control and crash through a school.

       These signs will encourage games of 'chicken' with drivers concentrating on driving at a speed such that the sign *just* avoids hitting their windscreen
