Pro-Bicyclist Sign On Morris Bridge Road

Not sure this sign has the intended effect.

To me, it says, "In order for your family member to avoid being killed, stop them cycling." Associate cycling with untimely death often enough and how can folks reach any other conclusion?

Any vehicle traveling in excess of 25kph is unlikely to note the quotation marks intended to convey irony/sarcasm (?!). The disheveled flag works on an artistic level to communicate a bland or faded patriotism, but again, this message does not reach passersby at a superficial glance.
