Lately I've been seeing a lot of funny signs on vehicles around Kyle.
This one... apparently lets you know that Suicide is to the right.

Suicide to the right.

I guess if you want to live, you'll go left.

Yep. The chart below that sign lets drivers know it is "suicide" to pass a semi truck on the right. I wrote an article about this once, and the right side blind spot for a truck driver is especially dangerous, because truckers tend to swing to the right to avoid trouble ahead of them as well as make wide turns.

Or you'll wait until the truck has completely cleared the intersection when it turns right. In 2007 two bicyclists were killed in Portland in just that sort of accident. I'm disturbed by the implication that this sign puts on their horrible deaths.
