Redneck USA

The redneck road atlas is dedicated to Redneck America, which is comprised of the southern portion of the United States:

Redneck Road Signs[edit | edit source]

Because many rednecks are illiterate (cannot read or write), the atlas (map) employs (uses) pictures as well as words to indicate highways, road conditions, rivers, lakes, rest stops, parks, picnic areas, railroad tracks, mountains, and points of historical and cultural interest. The following signs are typical.

Stop[edit | edit source]

Redneck drivers ride horses or mules more frequently than they drive pickup trucks or automobiles. Therefore, a redneck stop sign bears the same word that riders use to signal to their four-legged mounts to halt.

Pedestrian Crossing[edit | edit source]

Many male rednecks are seldom without a favorite pet, and most inhabitants of the Appalachian Mountains and the Deep South do not use leashes to control their animals. In fact, many redneck men are so completely engaged in the care of their pets that they may stumble across a highway oblivious to oncoming traffic. Former President Jiminy ("Cricket") Carter is said to have nearly been run over by a tractor-trailer rig while mating "walking" with his pet sheep, Doris. Reputedly, this incident occasioned the erection of rednect pedestrian crossing signs such as this one, intended to warn motorists of the possible presence of distracted redneck men.

School Crossing[edit | edit source]

Rednecks love their children, as many are the products of passionate love affairs between siblings, first cousins, or parents and their offspring. Therefore, school crossings are well marked, and motorists, redneck or otherwise, are expected, at the very least, to touch their brake pedals briefly whenever they enter a school zone, and absolutely no speed over 120 miles per hour will go uncited.

Check out for signs that read "SLOW. CHILDREN." It means there are "special" children in the area, so we should keep on driving but on a faster speed.

Slippery When Wet[edit | edit source]

Redneck slippery when wet sign

Pretty much all of redneck country is hilly, if not mountainous, and subject to inclement weather, including tornados, blizzards, thunderstorms, and worse. Icy roads and bridges can be treacherous, as can highways that are flooded. Melting snow can also make highways unsafe, especially at the speeds (120 mph to 180 mph) typical of redneck drivers, most of whom, being male, are high on testosterone. For this reason, one of the most important signs on redneck highways is the "slippery when wet" sign, which is indicated both on roadside signs and in the redneck's road atlas by a bikini bottom on the front of which has been printed the cautionary text, "Slippery When Wet."

Road Advisories[edit | edit source]

The redneck road atlas also includes numerous traffic, weather, and road advisories, identifying potential flood zones, detours, road construction sites (most of which are located in southwest Florida around Naples and Fort Myers), and grizzly bear mating locations (to be avoided at all costs). In addition, the atlas warns of areas in which mototists may expect to encounter wide loads, such as those caused by homeowners relocating their log cabins aboard their pickup trucks; areas in which road closures may be caused by impromptu hunting or fishing expeditions; the locations of roadhouses that feature topless dancers, country and western music, bluegrass music, or cheap beer; bridges that can do double duty as lake or river diving boards; and roads and highways along which travelers may feed (or be the feed for) hungry bears, mountain lions, or alligators.
