A NEW road sign in Queensland, Australia (澳洲昆士蘭州) has a bicycle and squiggly lines, then underneath is another sign stating “mangoes”. The signs might puzzle outsiders, but they were actually meant to warn road users that mangoes might fall on them from above.
The town where the road sign stands is Mango Hill, and the falling mangoes have hurt many passers-by. A local complained, “I was riding a bicycle uphill, but was knocked off course by the mangoes on the ground. I then fell down with my bicycle.”
A netizen added it is dangerous to walk under mango trees as the tree branches grow, since that might cause the mangoes to fall upon an even larger area. The mango season in the town starts in September each year, and ends in February next year.
