Sadly, no ducks or deer but lots of old people

I see Duck Crossing and Deer Crossing signs all the time, but rarely do I see any ducks or deer. It’s almost a tease.

After all, who wouldn’t want to see a deer and a bunch of ducklings crossing the street?

In terms of crossing signs, it seems to me that the Elderly Crossing signs are the ones that hold the most promise in terms of actually seeing the fauna that they describe.

There’s an Elderly Crossing sign down the street, and there’s always a good chance of catching sight of an elderly person in the wild.
