I saw this sign along the road the other day, having never seen anything like it I did a double take (and backtracked to get a photo.) Why is it we only have speed limits posted in multiples of 5? Maybe to make it easier to remember or to track while driving. And, more importantly, why did they decide to break out of the mold with this sign? Is it more effective, if only because it is so unusual? I did notice I slowed down more than I would have if it had said 25.
Maybe there is a lesson here - standing out from the crowd could be just the thing we need to do to be noticed.
I'm stretching here, but I'm feeling the need for a little Ryan Adams in my life today, here's his "Sweet 'lil Gal (23rd/1st)"
