|Very few countries resort to a text-only warning
sign for road works. Of those countries some follow a more people oriented strategy
than others. They give a textual equivalent of the common man at work drawing.
Fiji belongs to this group of countries. Oman also.
There is a small difference though. Fiji warns for Work men ahead, while
Oman says Men at work. Which isn't exactly the same.
Some countries often place textual and pictorial warnings together.
Australia and South-Africa f.e.
are warning for Road work(s) ahead but do not mention the people behind
the works. Zimbabwe however is telling us about
the Road Workmen ahead.
||The sign from the Hideaway resort isn't exactly an official road sign, but I do mention it here because it is a hair-raising find. It is the first
occurrence of a sign of the mediterranean group far from
its native habitat at the other side of the world. Visitors to the resort should be advised to crush it before it spreads.
