Redundant signs

In my travels, I have spotted the sign here a couple of times. Now, I don’t disagree that it’s a good reminder to motorists that it is state law to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, but there should be something said about placing these signs. For example, in the town where I photographed this particular sign, they have three of them. None of which are actually in a crosswalk. That’s probably because they wanted to ensure that the crosswalk was clear of snow; naturally these signs have appeared right when the snow has finally started to come to this area, so all three of them have little islands of snow on either side of them.

I wonder if it would be possible to ticket municipal governments for doing downright silly things like this…… 😉

Oh, and apologies for it being a bit blurry – it’s hard to take photos when the sun goes down at 5 pm 🙂
