I suspect that the blocked words are “please use other sidewalk,” but then again I don’t know for sure. I’d have to tear off the duct tape to find out.

This sign makes me think of hostages with their mouths taped shut. Even if the suppressed words are banal, there’s a menacing mood here.

But I guess there’s another way to see it: the double lines of tape are actually blanks, waiting for someone to fill them in with alternate instructions.

What would you write?
