Sign with a crossed-out woman and child
By C N Heidelberg 18:09 signs
ecently we've had multiple guests from the US ask us what these signs are all about. If you don't have any general idea, it appears to be a sign indicating that women and children are not allowed! But, fear not, Germany loves women and children as much as any other country. This sign indicates the end of the pedestrian zone! It means that beyond this sign you're now sharing the street with cars, so look where you're going. In a very brief search I can't find a US equivalent online, although it's possible there is one. We don't have very many pedestrian zones, though.
