Ahead Stop

I’ve always wondered why they do this. There are a few places in town (not all) that print bottom to top. From what I understand, we (in the US, Europe, etc…) all read left->right and top->bottom. It just looks wrong and is difficult to comprehend and is distracting. I guess I’m not getting the automatic understanding when I read differently than the way I was taught.

    2. It’s meant to be read as you’re driving. If it was printed top to bottom, you’d run over the bottom line before you could read it.

    4. Well the words printed nearest to you would appear first while driving. Sounds like sound logic to me.

    5. I read it just like the Star Wars intros. If you’re too short-sighted to see the first line in the distance, you shouldn’t be driving.
