road sign in Nouméa, New Caledonia
Driving around during our vacation in New Caledonia, I came across a number of road signs whose meaning was not intuitive to me, including the one above. I thought it might make a good “What am I?” quiz.
The sign obviously doesn't mean “No Bicycles Allowed” or I wouldn't be posting it here.... unless, of course, I'm doing the whole reverse-psychology thing to fake you out. But then again, I may well be doing the whole reverse-reverse-psychology thing to fake you into thinking I'm trying to fake you out.
Frankly, I'm so confused now that I don't even know. Anyway, what do you think the sign means?
As is usual with these quizzes, I'll hold all guesses privately until I publish the answer in a day or three.
UPDATE: I've posted a hint here.
