Notices

I was driving down the major highway through town the other morning on the way to work from physical therapy, and the electronic billboard for notifications said “Speed enforcement zone ahead. Move over for police.”

Seems like a nice speed trap warning. Which makes little sense…. why in the world would they warn people that there is going to be a speed trap ahead?

Because they want them to notice the signs.

The signs are usually boring, and are easy to ignore. Random seat belt warnings, or smog levels, or accidents.

But they need people to actually read them in case there were to be an actual emergency, otherwise they are pretty useless.

If they put actual useful things in there, people will actually read them.

I think the book of proverbs makes a bit more sense to me now.
