There are architects who either don't have a clue what they're doing or they just want to watch the world burn. Bored Panda has collected some of the most horrible architecture designs, and they seem to be created just to torture people.

From a bike path on the ledge of a canal to a tap above an electricity socket - all of these crazy places need a warning sign next to them. Or to be moved to hell, a place where they belong. Scroll down to check out the images and vote for those that deserve a "Worst Architecture Decision" award.

Not only did the sign have an unintended counterproductive consequence, it wasn't even effective at its mission - see blue car in the bike lane behind the sign.

The blue car is parked, as is the white car opposite.

Looks like it is in New South Wales in Australia. Typical placement of signs etc. It should have been straddling the unused crossover just on this side of said sign.
