55 Means 55 Sign


As I drove into Maryland on U.S. 301 on Saturday and spotted this sign, I hoped (at least for two full minutes) that I had entered a state that took safe driving seriously.

And you know something? Two minutes of hope on a Saturday morning ain't all that bad.

But then I realized that the speeders were still flying by and that maybe this sign didn't really mean anything. On the other hand, maybe drivers were driving more slowly than they did in an unaggressive enforcement zone.

In Ontario the warning signs are bigger. All the U.S. driver has to remember is to convert MPH to kilometer and then figure out which number to obey.

And somewhere, even in the U.S.A., zero-tolerance is the standard for speed limit enforcement.

Definitely not in Illinois!
