“Signs, Signs, everywhere a sign. Blocking out the scenery and breaking my mind.” I guess I’m dating myself. Some of you will get that and some of you won’t. 🙂
Looking at the picture above, the first time I was faced with going through this intersection, I kinda freaked out. At first my brain could not decipher what the hell I was looking at! I’d never seen a sign like this before!
I managed to figure it out without causing any fender benders going through the intersection, but it sure caused my heart to skip a beat at first!
Living in rural Oregon, “traffic” is when you have to wait for more than 2 cars at the stop sign to get onto the main road.
When I first moved to the Fort Worth area, I was pretty intimidated by the traffic here. Just getting on the freeway was daunting! Where I used to live, the freeway looked a lot like this:
But where I live now, they look like this!
Actually, it looks more like this:
In Oregon, I lived about 8 miles from work. It took me roughly 10 minutes to get to work. Here, I live Less than 8 miles from work. On the average, it takes me about 25 minutes to get to work. On a good day, 20 minutes. I’ve had it take as long as 40 minutes to go those less than 8 miles! Crazy!
But I digress. The reason for this post is the Sign! The Sign!
That Crazy traffic sign! I really, really hate the traffic here. So coming upon a Crazy sign like this just blew my mind.
I have a Wonderful life here in Texas and I do my best to show my gratitude to the Powers That Be. But Dear TXDOT people, please, please, no more signs like this!
