Day 23

Smart idea?

April 18th, 2010

Pennsylvania has a whole set of color-coded detours already signed and ready for use.

    Ohhh, leave it to Matt to find out what the heck these signs mean…I asked Bill [cause he grew up here and I’m from WI.] and he didn’t have a clue…thanks..and hope you’re staying warm!

  2. Thomas says:

    this is relatively new … Matt, you should have given us the date off the back! :-)


  3. Dave says:

    I figured that the underground railroad signs would be a lot more subtle than this.

  4. Steve says:

    Guess Lewis Black’s humor is a bit raw for this neck of the woods?

    This blog has reached my cultural level.

    I assume you saw those around Pittsburgh? They were installed recently to give people alternate routes around the jammed Interstates in case of an emergency evacuation. There’s another set of color-coded routes (belts) that ramble all around Pittsburgh that were intended as bypasses when the Interstates are too much. Trouble is, the belts go all over the place, often on small residential streets, and they aren’t much use.

    I’m from TN, and these “color coded signs” would never work in the south!

    More like a bonehead idea.
