I regret that I wasn't the one clever enough to do this, so here's to you, anonymous stacker of rocks.

This is painted on HWY 5 in Baja, just south of San Felipe. If you look closely at the "Vado" (Dip), you'll see that many did not heed the warning.

Don’t remember that painted on the road, but I sure do remember those vados! Holy crap those things can wreck your day, especially whatever you’re towing.
A side story to that very section of Road. (I should post this and other stories in the Baja 1000 thread!) Anyway....
Ray, Jeff, Janet and I were stopped at the store around Puertecitos, maybe cow patty’s I think when a couple pulled up towing an inflatable on a crap ass trailer with doughnuts for tires he busted up going a bit too fast into those dips, literally snapped the trailer nearly in 2 that he was holding together with straps. Looking for a welding shop, I think Jeff had the brilliant idea of suggesting they head down to the BFG pit a bit further down the road to get patched up, and that it was good timing to catch them before the race started the next day. After helping them better secure the sagging bits, we later caught up to them at the pit, all welded up with the best scrap metal Baja had to offer. Thanks BFG pit crew! Great bunch

I remember seeing that painted on the pavement, pretty funny. Obvously someone had a bad experience. On the same trip, we also came across an enclosed trailer on the side of the road with someone working on it. I stopped and went to see if he needed help, but to my horror I noticed that not only was there no wheel or tire, there was no axle or even a leaf spring. It had all been ripped off by the bad roads. Flat bed time..........

Haha it’s like a video game on those roads avoiding serious potholes & sometimes down the middle or opposite side of road while dodging traffic

One of the few places I've been where you don't have to go "off road" for an adventure.
