Children's crossing on Tristan da Cunha

Edinburgh of the Seven Seas, 17.III.2006
 
Roadsigns on Tristan are sparsely sawn. There aren't many people and unlike the Saints they don't import cars as a hobby. There isn't in fact much need for roadside decoration.
The signs found aren't exactly children's crossing signs, but given the remoteness of the site and the fact that we walked every single street and found no other is reason enough to show them nevertheless. They are related after all.
  Roadsigns on other British dependencies (e.g. Falklands, Saint Helena) adhere to the UK-standard with the sturdy girl dragging her brother. Not so on Tristan. We've reached a spot probably out of reach of the Queen's Regulations.

The wording is a bit unfortunate - a mind chuckling mix of command and reason - and reminds me of the Slow Children from the United States.
