The second is the old style guard with bars on the ground perpendicular

I was following a woman on one of the Nevada backroads, and she was
moving along pretty well. All of a sudden, she climbed on the brakes and
slowed down to about 20. There was a 'cattleguard' painted on the road
and she fell for it. Stupid cow!
I don't like walking across the real ones myself. I always have a vision
of a foot slipping between the rails followed by a broken ankle.
You just need to learn to do this and then you can just flit your way
across the rails. I'm sure the cows will be amused.
