Check out this pic. Many things come to mind, mainly the usual train of thought for the government as a whole.
First, why are there two signs displaying the same information inches apart, I assume one is to be replaced?
Why is it being replaced?
Is one sign outdated in its size or format? Reflectivity? Color?
How much does the new sign cost?
Was the construction company union? They needed to install a new sign to satisfy some union requirement?
What's going to happen to the old sign? Reused on another road? Recycled? Stolen by an employee for their man cave?
Is the old sign too low? Too high? Which one is old and which is new?
Is this double sign duty there to doubly enforce the Higher Fine Zone at Dorothy and Rt. 13? How much did those signs cost?
Now that the new intersection has been built, are we still going to be subject to the Higher Fine Zone, (which is about only a tenth of mile long.)?
All in all, I think the pic is funny and was worth an email to you. Time will tell what they do, would be a hoot if both signs were left up for a good while.
Does this mean I can drive 5,555 mph? The second sign has a bolt head decimal point. Maybe I can only go 55.55 mph!!!
BTW, these have been up for a week or so. Took this pic today.
