New Zealand's road signs are a mix of influences. from allover the world. The Children's Crossing signs come from Great Britain and are enriched with an Australian flavour.

It reminds me of its wildlife: almost anything alive is imported.

Considering his posture, the man probably won't suffer any back-aches. It is remarkable how men at work signs in some countries show people during a breathing-spell while other designs sometimes show people working to their death (f.e. Egypt). Is that a reflexion of the administration's attitude towards hard work?
