#36: Bendable Road Signs
Believe it or not, this sign is bendable. Many road signs are made of material that bends upon impact. This is a valuable safety measure in case of a car accident. The thinking behind using a malleable material is that a car running into something that bends will cause less damage than running into a rigid surface.
This traffic sign is an example from France, and it looks a little worse for wear. The scratches on this blue and white sign tell us that more than a few motorists may have bumped into this thing. Using bendable material is a good idea for road signs because this special material is durable, long-lasting, and has just the right amount of flexibility.
