Once? Twice? Three times a lady?
Come on; you’re not even trying anymore. This is almost as bad as all the photoshop I’ve seen on here lately.
Not shopped you overly-jaded cynic. I’ve seen this sign hundreds of times and it’s as real as your crappy attitude.
Heidi’s right. Near any prison in NV they have these signs. I think it would be pretty obvious.
Seen em between Phoenix and Gila Bend in AZ on the 85. No photoshop necessary.
I think I saw one just like this on US 95 in Nevada.
Those sites are more and more infested with annoying kiddies screaming “Photoshop!! Photoshop!!” every five seconds. The less a pic looks shopped, the more the kiddies yap at it. It’s infuriating.
This actually on HWY 10 just south of Tucson AZ. We had to worn our students from the base that is was a real sign not just a joke!
I have driven past this sign. Now I can’t remember where. This will drive me crazy until I figure it out.
I-17 north of Phoenix, AZ
How long? How long does one idiotic lawsuit take?
Those signs have been around FOREVER!!!
Not really “oddly” specific as I have seen that hitchhiker sign just like this or near every prison I’ve ever driven by. And my job title is “State Prison Drive-Byer”. So there.
I Love Humour….. hehehe… Thanks..
I think I saw this sign in southern utah
There’s signs like these along many interstates.
I don’t think I’ve EVER seen a prison sign without that sign under it. So… 30+ years ago?
If “+” is about 40 more.
I see the yellow sign wihought the green one a lot in open territory.
Ditto. Every prison town has these signs.
Must be a nice town you live in.
I do, but it’s not a prison town. I have, however, driven past prison towns on the highway.
And by the way, Ossining NY is quite a nice town, despite its being the home of Sing Sing prison. I’m saying that because it’s the only prison town I’ve actually visited.
Sigh. First two words of the above should be “it is,” not “I do.” Duh.
actually, right near the prisons, the crime rate is usually much lower than average, for cities where the prison is actually in town. People tend to worry about escapees getting into their house or something, but: 1, escapees wouldn’t hang around near the prison if they wanted to stay escaped, and 2. escapes are really not that common at all. I believe the prison where I worked had 3 in a 10 year period, with 2 being recaptured within 10 minutes, and one stayed out for a whole 3 hours.
Granted, an inmate on the loose for even 3 hours is really bad… especially if people don’t mind the signs
I agree. I’ve never driven near a prison and no seen a hitchhiker warning sign.
There are actually laws against picking up hitchhikers that they like to enforce esp around prisons.
Picked up some hitchhikers in Crescent City, near Pelican Bay and was pulled over and given a ticket.
The sign went up in 1988. It’s located outside Blythe California. There are two prisons there now, Chuckawalla Valley State Prison and Ironwood State Prison. The prisons are 20 miles from town on Intertate 10.
Agreed! I saw this post and thought, “That’s the prison on the 10 fwy near Blythe!”
Alright, this signs been posted on this website twice now. It’s because the hitchhiker may be an escaping inmate, and most people know that.
Sure would suck to NOT be an escaping inmate and need a ride, though.
Yeah, ditto on the “this is completely normal.”
See this outside of Jackson MI. Such a common sign that i don’t see why it’s even here.
I dont get out much…
Signs and posts like these on www is how I interact and see the world.
I love to laugh – both with AND at you !
“Keep it coming – love…”
Yeah, I’m pretty sure they’re everywhere. I saw one of these while passing the Las Vegas prison.
These signs are all over Michigan too…
Yep…and from the looks of it, the hitchhiking sign is older than the one proclaiming the State prison.
My wife is certain it was taken on the highway outside Connell, Washington. The landscape certainly looks right, and I think I’ve seen it near there myself.
Looks like west of Albuquerque NM. Been there and took a little drive. Saw the sign but NO prison.
We have these in Texas, no need for photoshopping.
Ive seen them a dozen times before as well.. I’ve seen them all over the states (Prison towns, and non Prison towns) and i’ve seen them in New South Whales Australia.
Mental ward in Elgin, IL has the same sign. Been there for at least 25 years.
Who ? You have ? Thank The Lord for the Internet…. lol
(msg to Pat W)
This isnt photoshopped, there’s that same sign when you drive from Overland Park, KS to Denver CO. Funniest sign ever.
Up between Tacoma and Bremerton in Washington State there are signs just like that where the highway goes by the women’s prison.
There are more of these signs in Nevada than there are towns.
There’s one like this along the highway near Sheridan OR too. But jenidiver – the lady hitchers probably have a much better chance haha. Or I watch too much porn. Who knows.
If a criminal is dumb enough to hitchhike after escaping and a driver dumb enough to pick them up, then they both deserve each other.
This sign is real and on a major interstate close to a state prison. In fact, there are several of these signs around our state due to proximity of penal institutions to freeways.
Best part about these kinds of signs is that near me they post it on one side of the highway, but not the other
Seen these around Florence, AZ where there is a prison and detention center. The desert landscape could be here in AZ too. Not a photoshop, sorry to burst your negativity bubble!
It’s a real sign guys.. I’ve seen it in Arkansas outside the state prison near Grady and Gould. (and that day of course my car broke down almost under the darned sign)
There are signs like this along the highway between Delta and Grand Junction in Colorado.
I thought all prison areas had these warnings. Every prison in Illinois has one.
If I remember right, there’s also signs like that on the Transcanadienne, near the Dorchester Prison.
i’ve seen these signs, also “beware, hitchhikers may be excaped convicts” this is probably real.
