Gee, it's nice to have to slow down for school zones again.
« on: January 11, 2021, 03:49:52 PM »

There were three school zones on my "back roads" route into Denver when I was commuting and the reports said I70 was abgeclogged.  That sort of conditioned me to hate them.

But I went out erranding today and I realized how nice it was to see a glimmer of normalcy return in the form of the blinking yellows and 20 MPH signs.

20 MPH??

Around here it's either 15 or 25.

20 MPH here in OH.  25 MPH in KY.  20-25 MPH in IN.

Heh. Twenty MPH is just a local reporter's (me) school zone limit.

So I guess 20MPH is an average.

I also chuckled to myself when I realized how "nice" that little return to normalcy was, Woody.
