Whoaaapl7A big red sign that says "STOP" sometimes isn't enough to get everyone to stop.

So a Chicago suburb thinks maybe a laugh will get their attention.

The village of Oak Lawn, Illinois, has installed second stop signs below the regular ones at 50 intersections with messages including "WHOAAA" or "Stop ... and smell the roses," "Stop ... right there pilgrim" and "Stop ... in the name of love."

Mayor Dave Heilmann says he thought the secondary signs "might make people smile and take notice."

With news video. There are more photos here.

I don't know for sure that some of these maybe photoshop. The ones I have on
are clearly photoshop while the media reports of that city doing such.
