Speed Limits?

August 29th, 2002 - 12:57 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

I know, I should talk about my trip, but instead I'm going to just talk about one tiny, tiny portion of it. The rest of it will most likely have to wait until I decide to take the trouble to upload the accompanying pictoral evidence, etc. Can you have an et cetera if you only have one item in the list? Never mind. I need to stop distracting myself with random thoughts that occur in my head. Oh wait, that's what this entry's going to be about. I guess I can't mind being distracted then. Although it's probably not going to make it a very long entry, but then again, no one ever said people were judging my diary entries and that they were based on length per entry. And that is A Good Thing.

So Anyway, what I had on my mind a few days ago. I was driving home from the vacation and I had the last leg of the trip which was from slightly before the SD/ND border down through SD and across over to home. Anyway, what struck me as peculiar (or something...I don't know) was the sign just inside the SD border that came right before the sign denoting the speed limit on the US highway. It said, "Speed Limit Strictly Enforced".

This sign is so obviously wrong that it's funny. They should've put up a sign that said, "Speed Limit Selectively Enforced" or "Speed Limit Occasionally Enforced If You Look Suspicious Or Are Going Stupidly And Recklessly Far Over The Speed Limit In Front Of Our Noses In Which Case We Will Pull You Over And Give You A Ridiculously High Ticket". Maybe that last one would've been a bit long for a highway sign though. I mean, do that many people *really* pay attention and follow the speed limit exactly? Even the patrol car that passed me was doing at least 5 miles over the speed limit and he wasn't even chasing anybody. I know old people tend to go under the speed limit because they can't see or something, but other than that...?

So that's my little mini-rant for the day and I'm going to go to work on paring down the enormous quantity of e-mail I have to go through because I went on vacation and to getting the pictures from my vacation off of my camera now. Bye.
