prohibited area

Postby mad dan » Mon Jan 28, 2008 1:45 am

In Mad Max, after the death of The Toe Cutter, Max drives past a "prohibited area" sign.
Does anyone know why the area is prohibited?
Sorry if it's been brought up before, but it's just something I've alway wondered about
...sorta slow motion. he leaves the seat, goes through the windscreen, headfirst straight into the tree...right. and then, bounces back through the windscreen. by the time we got to him.. he was just sittin there trying to scream with his face ripped off......whats the matter?

Certain land in remote areas are designated military grounds, warning signs back then were in place as testing and armed forces were present in training.
You would find makeshift sheds and vehicles in there and were usually exploded, it is highly illegal to enter these grounds as well as dangerous to your health...
I think some chemical testing also took place hence the skull & crossbone...
If it's all the same to you....I'll drive that tanker!

I think in the context of the movie, the sign was a warning to civilians not to go there. I think it was prohibited because of the lawlessness there, the nomad trash, marauders, no police in that area, high death rate, etc.

Were both signs just made up for the movie or were they real signs that you had at the time?

I always wondered about the restricted area myself.

Anything past the posted signs is outside of MFP patrol routes and jurisdiction. If you listen to dispatch she reminds the officers to "respect territorial range". Once you pass those markers radio communications become weaker and the level of danger increases exponentially.

It's a representation of where Max is going in his mind.
