Children's crossing in Mexico

near San Cristobal de las Casas, 1993 V.2004: pict. M. Chartier V.2004: pict. M. Chartier
Our oldest find from Mexico features real-world children in action. It's also our only find without the stiff bean-pole characters of the other samples. Some of the more recent signs are inspired by the old ones (e.g. the Escuela-drawing suggests movement.) but most follow more the American line and carry children standing ready for a sprint, which is in probably the best way to cross the road. I wouldn't blame any driver losing control when these horrible signs come in view.

You want to test how much you can bear?
Try Argentina.
