English Signage Etiquette

Having just returned from a ten day trip to England visiting friends and traversing the countryside with more friends, we came upon some interesting signs. Some were safety related - looking to the right just doesn't jive with my brain - while many more were doggie related. (By the way, the dogs we met were well mannered, well trained, and always on a leash). What I found most whimsical were those warnings about human behavior - with very specific consequences. These posts are obviously meant to remind folks that a polite society is not only expected, but enforced. Do you suppose they are intended more for the locals or the visitors?
