A couple of my friends went to Canada and they told me they saw a sign that said Texas Gate ahead. They had no clue what it meant until they hit it, a cattle guard. So my question is do you Canadians *Puz* actually call cattle guards Texas gates or is this story fictional.

I'd guess anywhere past Manitoba calls them Texas gates.

Depending on the quality of the road, hitting a cattle guard at full speed can be very unpleasant and more than a little dangerous. What were they doing in Canuckistan anyway?

In British Columbia, I once saw a sign that said, "High collision location. Follow too close." That one made zero sense and made me laugh.

A cattle grid or cattle guard - also known as a vehicle pass, Texas gate, or, in New Zealand, a cattle stop

No, I have never heard that term, perhaps it was the farmer's who put it there.

Actually the faster you hit a cattle guard (in good condition) The less bumps you feel. I don't know which province they were in.

This kind of off subject but I was reading a farm magazine and there was a story about a rancher trying to make a deal with an oil company who found oil on his land. He said he would sign the contract if they agreed to replace each gate on his ranch with a cattle guard. After talking it over, the owners of the company (New Englanders) asked the rancher how much a cattle guard charged per hour. :rolleyes:

I'm from Saskatchestan and I've heard Texas Gate & Cattle Guard. It really depends on the person you talk to but most will know that they mean the same thing.

I think a texas gate is different. From wikipedia.

Quote

Portable "Texas gates" suspend the gate by springs so that it lowers to the ground when a vehicle passes over then returns to a position 6 inches (15 cm) above the ground.
