I was out driving the other day when I saw this street sign:
Clearly, it means that handicapped traffic must turn left (look carefully at the yellow sign at the top left).
I don’t agree with this at all. Why do the handicapped have to turn left and no one else? Do they mean that the road ahead isn’t fit for mobility apparatuses and so people using one need to exit? If so, why are they expecting someone in that situation to be out on the road like that instead of in a car? Wouldn’t the sidewalk be safer?
Regardless, this seems discriminatory. If there’s a reasonable explanation for what this means then I can’t think of it. I mean, what the heck is this supposed to be indicating?
On an unrelated note, have you voted yet for story of the month at Bartleby Snopes (it’s at the bottom of the current stories page)? It would be very cool if you voted for my story “Hollidays Gone Wrong.” No need to provide an email, install anything, or register. Just click and vote.
