This weekend is the biannual statewide business meeting of an organization I belong to. Friday afternoon three of us piled into a car for the trip halfway across the state. We arrived at the hotel and checked in, then immediately left again for dinner at a nearby Mexican restaurant.
The rest of the night passed uneventfully. This morning I had time to take a walk through a nearby condominium complex before the meeting started. I've been in the area before, and every time I see this offbeat speed limit sign it makes me smile:
I've always wondered how well this unusual sign keeps down the actual traffic speed. Does it make people slow down to take a look at it? This time I had a chance to figure out that the answer is no. I was walking along the side of the road when a car came barreling around the corner. Thank goodness I was moving against the traffic and could see it coming to get out of the way.
