There was one such road near me, it was one side (prong) of a fork in the road, it was fun taking it at speed where it would cause the car to slid sideways 'just a bit' making that turn and a vacant flat open field to end up on if the slid went a bit more then planned. Speed here would be about 35-40 mph. I found that out accidentally the first time I took that turn without that 'helper' sign to warn me.
