Least Useful Sign Ever?

Damage Guardrail Sign

Why in the world would a motorist need to know that there is a damaged guardrail ahead? Would this cause someone to alter their driving to ensure that they pick another suitable location to careen into a perfectly suitable guardrail?

If anyone knows the justification for such a sign, please let me know. I feel that litigation or the fear of litigation is a likely explanation for the sign but I am holding out hope that there is another explanation totally unrelated to the legal system.

    My guess about the sign is that they want drivers to be prepared for the upcoming damaged guardrail….maybe some drivers would be startled by it if they weren’t warned. Your guess is as good as mine…..
