If there's A sign, somebody tried it.....I feel I am a law abiding person.
My daughter is a sworn police officer but, even without that, I tend to do the right thing.
Seeing signs that forbid certain behavior or actions tells me someone must have tried it.
At the end of a tour of Buckingham Palace, I saw that someone MUST have flipped out a blanket and picnic basket on the Royal Lawn.
At Niagara Falls, I did not see anyone lugging around a barrel so maybe "going over the Falls" is no longer a popular fad.
The sign is a reminder NOT to even think about edging closer to the massive water surging past.
Perhaps lawyers suggested this sign as a head start in presenting a sad case in court.
Going in to see the inspiring Lincoln Memorial in Washington, I fought the urge to give that banister a ride.
Similar to the reaction we have when we see a "wet paint" sign.
