The picture says it all..

A sign warning drivers about pedestrians running across the highway is posted by the side of the highway at the US-Mexican border near San Diego. (AFP/File/Hector Mata)




I thought this was hilarious.

LOL I couldn't believe when I saw those signs on the way to L.A from San Diego. That's hilarious

I don't really find it funny. My parents came here illegally, so that I can get a great education, which I did (chemical engineer). My 2 cents.

I've seen the signs too. They're just nort of San Diego. One running from the beach to the hills on one side of the checkpoint and one running from the hills to the beach on the other side of the checkpoint. Sorry state of affairs if you think of it.

My two cents...

1. I find the sign funny. Sue me.

2. My dad came from Mexico to improve his life, too. But, he came here LEGALLY.
