Spotted in a community in Oakland County, Michigan:
Well that’s perfectly clear, isn’t it?

Compared to the federal budget, yes.
“But officer, according to my watch it’s 7:16 AM!!!”
I saw one almost as bad the other day in Rolla, One for 30, with a second for 20 with 3 time zones (it did not say “School Zone”. I almost had to stop to figure out what was what.
If you think that is bad, try reading 49 CFR 172 and 173 when trying to properly ship a dangerous goods. Not only is it written with arcane language but virtually every paragraph references some other paragraph meaning that just reading it is of no help.
@superdestroyer: I’ll see your CFR 172 and raise you with the Hatch-Waxman Act. If anyone can understand the time calculations on expiration dates for the 180 days exclusion period, I’ll buy him a banana split:
Well Doug, I appreciate the spirit behind your snark, but actually, the sign is not confusing at all. It lays out the times when the speed limit is in effect with great precision. I don’t see any ambiguities or contradictions. What is confusing?
Of course it is absurd to expect someone to absorb all that information and make the proper decision as they speed by, even at 25 mph. But “confusing” is not the operative word here.
Confusing? Okay, it’s not confusing. More of a sign that just looks unhelpful. Whatever happened to “when children are present”? Cheaper than a flashing light, I suppose.
Shouldn’t there be a time zone indicator ???
Ole Miss’s campus has a uniform speed limit of 17 mph.
There’s a resort in SW Virginia called The Homestead where the speed limit on the grounds is 21mph.
