Funny road people…

While driving to Charlotte on Christmas day to see my mom and Grumps (mom’s dad), Jeff spotted a road sign that led us to believe that someone in the Department of Building Highways has a sense of humor: Incident Management Patrol System. Given the government’s propensity to abbreviate, this could have been quite funny. (As it turned out, someone wimped out and the real acronym was IMaPS, but it was funny for a few moments at least).

This reminded me of another sign I saw years ago (again on the way from Durham to Charlotte at Christmas). This one, which was in the construction zone around Burlington, was one of those big multi-line sign units that can be changed as circumstances warranted. It said:

Ho
Ho
Ho
You must go slow!

This slayed me. Still does as a matter of fact.
