Singular Sign

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.

  2. I've never ever seen anything like this. What fun! Not fun if you get hit by a car driven by a crazy person though.
