Almost any road sign would serve as well.

In the North: "Bridges Freeze Before Roads"
In the South: "Get Right With God"

Alas, here in California where the state, in its infinite wisdom, has
decreed that road signs painted in the pavement will be phrased as if
drivers read lines from the bottom up because that's how they encounter
them, these signs would read:

Before Roads
Bridges Freeze

and

With God
Get Right
