Rusted backlit pedestrian crossing signs (With one also busted, exposing its two 13W T5 fluorescents)

Rusted backlit pedestrian crossing signs (With one also busted, exposing its two 13W T5 fluorescents)

Both signs are rusted (And also not straight because of the two storms of winter 2009-2010), while the left one also broken on one side to expose its two 13W T5s that operates with switchstart/preheat magnetic ballasts and glow starters.
I hope that these signs will be replaced with new ones that have also wig-wag flashers.

Could this have been clipped by a large vehicle? Looks like it has been there a long time..

Brisluminous: The wind from one of the storm in the last winter of 2011-2012, which was 100 km/h, tilted the pedestrian crossing signs and opened the left one.
The open pedestrian crossing signs was fixed, but these pedestrian crossing signs are stilln't aligned, and only the right operating.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Sorry yes - I didn't read your post properly.

That must have been a big storm. We had a very large storm in Brisbane in 1998. I was working in a shop in the CBD when the storm hit. A large hanging fluorescent sign that was very heavy began to swing violently with the wind. To my surprise it did not fall. That afternoon coming home from work, I saw large fluorescent signs folded over with the tubes and wires smashed and dangling down to the ground. Storms can surely do great damage
