The Border Roads Organization has a certain twang in writing the copies for their signboards, in this article we have covered some of the signs that BRO has put up across the roads that they have built and maintain some funny signboards.
1). Words Can Wait Accidents Don’t.
One never knows what can happen in a fraction of a second. Moving eyes away from the road can be fatal, especially on hill roads. BRO has a very sexist sign to convey the very same. Keeping the sexist element aside the message on the sign board does convey the subtle message it hopes to put across.
2).Bridging Gaps Cutting Across Mountains
BRO works where everyone else fails. Landslides blocking roads and roads falling off the cliffs are an everyday affair for the BRO all through the Monsoons. They reach inaccessible places to fix and build roads. There is literally nothing that nature can do to stop the might builders.
3).They Love Us, But They Don’t Love Speed
BRO loves travelers, but they despise speed. Speed is the mother of all tragedies on the road. It is thrills but it also kills. This sign board on a relatively straight stretch of road emanates the love and hate equally, for travelers and speed respectively. BRO signs have a twang that cannot be matched by any
other sign board.
4).Never, we repeat Never, drive after drinking!
There is really no point in trying to elaborate on this point. It is a fact that drunk driving is the leading cause of road disasters in the world, and driving when drunk spreads nothing but sorrow. Drinking is fun, but driving after drinking is a terrible idea. Alcohol is enjoyed best with the company, but driving when drunk is more dangerous with company.
5).Indian Standard Time= Indian Stretchable Time
We are hardly ever punctual, and being late is sometimes even considered a virtue in the Indian society. Just kidding. To be honest driving like a madman to save time is a very bad idea, it makes no sense to risk one’s life to save a little time. What difference would a little time make considering the fact that once could end up dead or in a coma?
6).Inconvenience, Regrets, and Noises!
They have a different twang in their signboards which cannot be paralleled by any other signboard in the country. We wonder what the creative writers smoke to come up with such signboards. The apology for the inconvenience has its very own BRO flavor.
7).Marriage And Speed Never Go Hand in Hand
BRO has a simple message behind this signboard, Save Your Marriage and Save Your Life. When one is married it is extremely wise to divorce speed because it can not only kill you but ruin your spouse’s life. Life is a gift, and marriage is its surprise, enjoy the gift to enjoy the surprise.
8).Horses Don’t Function When Drunk, Neither Do Humans
BRO really hates drunk drivers, it seems. It was mentioned in the previous point too and has been repeated again. Seriously, stop drunk driving.
9).Immature Insurance Policies Are of No Use
There is literally no point in having 10000 insurance policies that never mature. One loses on profits as one loses life. It’s a double loss and a greater tragedy. Let the policies mature before you switch off.
10).Personifying A Road
Only BRO can come up with such corny lines, seriously! It is true that one should be gentle on curves, both a woman’s and a road’s. Being a gentleman is really a virtue, both women and roads love a gentleman.
11).Pehelwani Rahkiye Akhadey Mein
The roads are not meant for wrestling. If you wrestle with the road, there can be only one winner, and it will never be you. Be prepared to lose this fight for sure.
12).Safe “Tea” For All
Drive safely, drink a cup of tea. The sign board tries to put in a smile on the face of the reader. Driving
safely ensures one’s safe arrival at the destination and tea is the elixir of life.
13).It would be a disaster if brakes broke
Always check the break lining and break oil before beginning your journey. It is also a great advantage to keep one’s breaking in check, breaking too hard or breaking too slow can lead to several disasters while on the road.
14).Wanna book a spot in hell
To book a spot in hell and a personal interview with Satan, one simply has to drive like hell. Save yourself the embarrassment and try not to drive like a-would- be-Demon. Maybe the people travelling with you have no plans to go to hell.
15).Hospital are boring already, imagine staring at the ceiling there
Just imagine, multiple broken bones, countless stitches, metal plates, plaster and the smell of medicines all day all night while you stare at the blank ceiling. Pretty sad a sight right? We bet!
16).They cut stone, and join hearts
The BRO has a tongue that can bite and heal at the same time. They are dedicated to connecting hearts and reach places where no one dares to set foot. Their work has been commendable and this particular signboard sums it all up
These are only some of the signs scattered across the roads that are built and maintained by BRO. yet
they give one a sense of how they find pleasure even in such difficult terrain.
