School speed limit sign of the year

Nanny state, revenue-generating grab, or just a stupid design … you make the call.

This sign is out front of an elementary school in White Lake Township, Mich. Obviously, a simple 25 MPH Speed Limit when Children Present and a couple of flashing yellow lights indicating when the kids were out-and-about did not cut it.

If this is a real sign – and I think it is – it may just win the award for most complicated street sign EVAH. Just trying to read this while driving by at 25 could be a disaster in the making.

    I wonder how many accidents will be caused by drivers trying to read the sign, or trying to see their watches in order to comply?
    School zone.? Speed limit 20.? ’nuff said.

    The sign is real and apparently the township didn’t want to pay the $50,000 that a flashing light would have cost. But they probably spent some bucks figuring out what times to put on the sign and then getting the sign made. They will probably need to spend more dollars if they ever change the school schedule.? Obviously, the sign could have simply indicated 25 mph between, say, 6:30 & 9:30 AM and 2:00 & 4:30. The good news is that they didn’t list the dates that school is in session.
    I wonder if everyone in that town has to synchronize their watches.
