Reader to SHA: Use signs for timely rain reminders
John Dusch of Scaggsville has a modest suggestion for the State Highway Administration that I think has some merit:
How about suggesting to the SHA that on days like today (Dec 1), when it is pouring rain, that they change the overhead signs on I-95 from the ever popular "report suspicious activity ..." to something that might actually do some good like "wipers on, lights on".
Judging by the number of cars you see on the road with wipers flapping away and lights off (including mine at times), people could use such a reminder. And, really, are these "report suspicious activity" messages really preventing the next 9/11 or merely keeping fear alive? My guess is that the more mundane but timely reminder does a whole lot more for public safety. Especially when it's raining.
