Do Not Block Drive Way

Do Not Block Drive Way

In a city known for politeness, it’s refreshing to come across a sign as blunt as this one. There’s no “Please” to soften the blow. This is an order!

I love the way the word “Block” is so much larger than the others, like a voice suddenly louder. If you listen to the tone of this sign, you’ll hear exasperation, with barely suppressed rage beneath the surface: You’ve done this a million times before, now stop!

The security camera adds a delicious final touch. Who knew Toronto could be so nasty?
