Can the Children Play Safely?

A weathered sign raises the question

The road is busy. Cars whiz by with no apparent awareness of the children. There is a sign, but with age, weather, and fouling by birds, does it still work? Does anyone driving by heed its message of caution?

I wonder when the sign was first erected. Over its long service, did it ever slow down a car and save a child’s life?
