I was always taught to follow directions. When I see a sign that gives specific directions it seems reasonable to do what it says. Obviously, some people don't ever see the need to do what they are told because they know better, or simply don't care. Maybe they are just so busy they just didn't notice it. That's even a better excuse. Regardless, here is a great example of what not to do. In our neighborhood there is a sign that clearly shows not to park past a certain point. Every day someone is parked past that point. I just didn't see so much lack of compliance to directions when we lived in Milwaukee. I just can't help but notice.
