A PTown April Fool

This may be Provincetown's most ridiculous traffic sign,
and that's saying a lot! What does it instruct us to do?
This extremely obtuse sign, in a very busy location, may well be the most confusing of all of the nonconforming, oddball signs on Provincetown roads. Where is this sign, and what could it possibly be trying to tell us?
If you can successfully answer those questions, or even if you can't, you could win TheYearRounder's annual April Fool's Contest, and a great lunch for two at a popular PTown restaurant.
Just send in your entry by 2:13 AM on Sunday, April 5th, 2015, by e-mailing the answers to both of these questions (where can this sign be found, and what does it mean?) to, or dial 42423 PTOWN to leave a voice mail or text with both answers, your name and phone number. You can also snail mail your answers, name and phone number to TheYearRounder, P O Box 1632, Provincetown, MA, 02657. The postmark determines the time of arrival on all mail submissions.
Here are a couple of links to get you into the April Fool's spirit. See how I turned out to be Last Year's April Fool, and watch my all-time favorite April Fool's prank on video, the BBC Penguins April Fool. Then watch BBC April Fool Penguins - How They Did It. If you have a favorite April Fool's Day prank or two, send them to me.
If one set of correct answers is received before the deadline, obviously that entry wins, but, as usual, if more than one correct entry is received, the winner will be chosen in a random drawing from all entries arriving on time, so you may not even have to be right to win a prize. Any really funny answers, right or wrong, will be awarded a special prize, as determined by a small panel of year-round Townies. And, as usual, TheYearRounder reserves the right to award additional prizes for no conceivable reason whatsoever, so be sure to enter.
