Traffic Signs

STOP sign use to mean stop look both ways then proceed; now it means slow down a little to ensure no cops are there if not gun it.

MERGE AHEAD sign use to mean move into the lane that is continuing as soon as possible; now zoom up to last point and zip in in front of those idiots who were considerate.

SPEED LIMIT 50 sign use to mean don't go over 50 + 5 mph; now means do not under any circumstances go below 55 preferably 60 or above.

NO PASSING stripe do not pass; now it means nothing.

TRAFFIC LIGHT green means go after checking both ways & yellow and red stop; now green gun it ASAP, yellow speed up; red if it just turned no use stopping.

“Outside of traffic, there is nothing that has held this country back as much as committees.”
Will Rogers

“The only way to solve the traffic problems of the country is to pass a law that only paid-for cars are allowed to use the highways. That would make traffic so scarce, we could use our boulevards for children's playgrounds.” Will Rogers
