Sweden’s quirky signs: No Balloons allowed

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Sweden is exceptionally kid friendly, though apparently not for those carrying balloons. At least not in its southern city of Malmö. A friend spied a menacing anti-jovial not-allowed sign this morning at Malmö’s Triangle train station.

According to Sydsvenskan, Sweden’s southern regional daily paper, the no-go zone for helium-filled balloons includes Malmö’s City Tunnel.

Apparently, the balloons get stuck in the electrical lines and short the system.
– The tunnel is low and balloons cannot rise over the lines, said Bodil Sonesson from the Swedish Transport Adminstration.
