Road Sign Visibility? That's Nobody's Business but the Turks'.

Residents of Tokat, Turkey, are washing their clothes in a small stream and then hanging them on road signs on the Tokat-Sivas highway to dry. Needless to say, this creates a bit of a problem for motorists travelling through the area, as pertinent road-condition information is rendered invisible. An area woman involved with the practice says, "I don't have any other place to dry my clothes. It doesn't take long. We come and get them later. What else can we do??" Um, how about sticking a couple of poles in the ground and using a length of inexpensive twine as a clothesline? Just a thought. [Thanks to RD for the tip.]
