Default A Warning road sign

It is a lot of show reports at present here on Smokstak which is very enjoyable.
We are heading of for a one day town show our self this evening and whilst taking a few pics of the trailer load I catched this picture which we think is a bit funny and an oddity.
Perhaps you guys have others alike out there to share?

Tore - Spotted this one guarding a stationary boiler/engine display at the Western NY Gas & Steam show a couple years ago:

Don't speak Swedish. The LOKO part seems to fit

Hm,... I do not think it is Swedish? rather Latin.

Lokomo for the motion and bil (bilis) for the ability to move.
German, French and others would say the same.
Remember you got your word tractor the same way.

The LOKO line was an attempt at humor.
Actually, I was playing on the Spanish idiomatic, ' loco ' meaning ' crazy '.
Sometimes, I am a jokester... admittedly lame...
Except when it comes to boiler preservation and water treatment
