19° Do you think that the people who make road signs have bad days? I think they do and I have proof.
Many years ago, a Reno neighborhood installed obstructions in the street that make a car or truck zigzag. The idea is that the vehicle will slow down for the obstruction, which is its purpose. Unfortunately, anyone who couldn’t successfully negotiate this obstruction at 45 miles per hour, probably should have a license to operate a motor vehicle. In fact, this traffic annoyance device causes ‘some’ people to go faster to see how good they are at an obstacle course.
But the question is, what do you call something that is supposed to have a purpose, but doesn’t? Obviously, it stumped the sign makers as they came up with “Traffic Calming.” At least they have a sense of humor.
