Children's Crossing on
Ascension Island

Georgetown, 26.VII.2003
  No spot on the globe is considered too remote for members of our world-wide sign spotting team. Las Malvinas, South Georgia, or Saint Helena, we've been there to acquire new knowledge. But never first we were. Always one of Her Majesty's Officers was there earlier imposing Britannia's rule.
It's therefore hardly a surprise that the children's signs belong to the UK-group where the girl drags the boy. A good observer will instantly notice that the design is the pure breed of the mainland, but first time visitors will probably appreciate a hint. The differentiating feature is that she mischievously plants her foot were she shouldn't. (Compare this with other countries in the UK-group.)

The speed limit is at the high end of the scale, even if the indication is in kilometers. Children on Ascension only survive if they are fast enough. (Short table with more speed limits.)
