Road signs

Sometimes road signs can be quite amusing, unfortunately it's not always convenient to take a snapshot. The first time I saw this one we were driving past in the car and I only got a glimpse. Only having seen the bottom sign, I couldn't understand what it meant.

On a later date when we were walking around the area I took another look and worked it out. It means if you ride your bike near tram lines with only the back wheel on, the front fork could get stuck in the tram tracks and fling you over the handle bars causing your head to fall off – it's so obvious when you think about it. The question is, why isn't he wearing a helmet? Oh, that's right, we're in New Zealand.
