Street furniture hacking

colored street scene A very rich picture that depicts street signs. The blue one in the foreground has been severely damaged but still holds its primary function: 1) show people to go straight at this intersection 2) serve as a support for stickers with hookers' phone numbers (it's an intersection where people have to wait in their cars). The damaged arrows seems to indicate to go straight and make a sort-of backward jumping. In the background, much more classic signage.

These "hooker stickers" are very common in France. More and more stickers are put on this kind of surface because traffic light or other street artifacts have a new "coating" that prevent them from putting sticker on them: Bad surface for stickers

Why do I blog this? just to document some examples of how people re-appropriate street "furnitures" and how others try to prevent them from doing so.
