Warning sign to not walk in front of a car

D800, ISO100, 1/250 sec @ f/5.6, Nikkor 50mm

I have a good number of signs in my collection. From normal, to serious, to funny, informative, to… well… what would you call this?
The Chinese (this was shot in Hong Kong) are either morbidly sarcastic, ingenious, or then… this was just a very unfortunate fluke.

I’d say the sign means that in this area there’s a good chance you’ll be run over by a car, and IF you were to survive the hit and you’re down on the ground spitting blood in the last takes of breath you have, you’re kindly informed that the end is nigh without having to go through the trouble of reading it upside down.
And have a good day.
