The Final Countdown ...

For the last two days on my way to work I have been witnessing the most bizarre sequence of road signs displayed. I will now share with you the progression as I have seen it and I challenge you to explain it.

(fyi -these are not photos of the actual signs I saw - I'm not that good)

These signs are being displayed on US Route 100 in Maryland. US Route 1 is a few exits down from the stretch I usually drive but it is NOT a major highway. It has traffic lights - it's nothing special. On top of that, 2 exits before it is the Baltimore-Washington Pkwy, THAT is a major highway; and 2 exits further down is freaking Interstate 95! Why did the road workers feel the need to remind everyone how far they were from Route 1?

If that wasn't strange enough - less than a mile down the road we get this sign.

WTF Thanks for the countdown?

Is this some new program I'm not aware of?

Seriously - is there something you should be telling us here? I mean, since when is 6am on a Thursday the prime time for drunk drivers? I think most people are fairly conscious of looking out for dangerous drivers on the road but is this really the time and place for the sign?

O-K ... Maybe I should move.
Is this what my tax dollars are paying for?
Was there just an over abundance of prisoners on work release this month - just trying to keep them busy? Or are the 911 operators bored and looking for someone to chat with?

I'm sorry, but that's hilarious! At least you're not bored on you're way to work, what with keeping an eye out for RTE 1 & drunk drivers!

Kind of like those silly,progressive signs in the Crofton neighborhood that read "if you lived here, you'd be home now".
Yes, I think they are playing a little light hearted with the work release guys!

Well isn't that interesting. I only get to see the same old boring sings day after day. So when you call 911 what are you supposed to tell them?

This is so funny and very very strange.
