Mr Dobbs Ponders The Use Of Hyperbole In Italian Road Signage

Mr Dobbs isn't keen on using expletives or superlatives. Never really understands what "really urgent" means, nor "extremely dangerous".

No wonder he's a little puzzled in front of this exclamation point that someone placed not far from the house, next to a slight indent on the road.

After a while he shuddered at the never ending challenge between road workers and drivers. They don't trust each other, so they must resort to extremes in order to settle somewhere in the middle. That bump was maybe worth a question mark, as in "shouldn't you pay attention anyway?"
