    Farmgirl, the snotty teen girls would insist that there is no risk of them falling so the sign does not apply to them.

    That is funny.

    Seriously, our ranch entrance over now 100 years has had several different front gates.
    Some people disregard any signs and still trespass.

    We had mostly white, silver, OSHA yellow and light blue/turquoise colors.

    This time, we remodeled with a top with the name and brands and silhouettes, tall and narrow and have tall gates, painted cherri/barn red, a darker red.

    For some reason, this is imposing enough, along with the multiple signs that we always had there, that now trespassers are at a minimum.

    Talking to others, it seems that the darker colors and taller gates on entrances do at least stop people long enough to rethink if they really want to barge in past clear no trespassing signs.

    Those of you with problems ought to try that, configure the entrance where gates are tall and colors dark and see what happens.

    If you are not a business geared to attract the general public, the less inviting you make your entrance, the better for the safety of all.
    If someone still comes in where clearly not wanted, trespassing, they are already suspect to be up to no good, because normal law abiding citizens do respect clearly marked places.

    Our gate has a sign with our wildlife preserve status and below "watch for rattlesnakes".
    We do have some right under the cattleguard at times, it is a real warning.
    That I think keeps people moving on also.

    I saw a sign at Pet Smart last week:

    Dog is friendly, Beware of Owner

    I thought it might apply to a few situations I have read on here .

    One of the odder people in town enclosed his property with an 8 foot fence and posted no trespassing signs in English, French, and German. He also painted his kid's treehouse battleship grey, so it looked rather like a sniper tower. The whole effect just shouted neo-Nazi gun nut. I don't imagine he got a lot of casual traffic.

    Does anyone else see a tall soild fence and want to know whats on the other side?

    For some reason I just want to know what is on the other side, if I can see what is on the other side I look and carry on but when I can't see I have tons of things go through my mind. I don't tresspass to see just want to know. ;-)

    Safer to check them out on Google Maps. Amazing detail in the most recent maps.
