    I saw that and got in a disagreement with a friend that it was fake, they said it was real.

    How about the sun hits, the black lettering gets hotter than the white, melts that portion more... to produce that effect.
    I think it could be real!

    The face of the sign has two bolt heads sticking out of it. I don't think the ice would be able to slide down over those.

    Well I just saw a picture from a news website that shows it from another angle so maybe it is real...

    It all happened in Mustang Oklahoma after an ice storm... its real and happened on multiple signs.

    It is forming to the vinyl layers on the signs.

    I don't know about forming to vinyl on the sign..... as mentioned earlier, the look appears they were embossed and screen printed over to begin with.... as you can see in this stop sign, that had die-cut vinyl.

    Seen on Facebook-frozen-stop-jpg

    But again, who cares ??

    I doubt they were embossed. All the clients I have who produce roadsigns use layers of vinyl. There's the reflective base signs and then the lettering itself. I have no problem believing the ice adhered to the sign, conformed itself to the vinyl layers, then melted from the sign heating underneath it and slipping off.

    This is how I've ever seen / know that road signs are made... Reflective Base Layer then Translucent overlayed vinyl.

    Has to be fake - we have road signs here and even in the dead of winter I have never seen ice on any of them.
