Unusual Speed Limit Sign

This is quite the street sign for people to read and comply with. The sign instructs drivers to slow down to 25 mph between 6:49-7:15, 7:52-8:22 and 8:37-9:07 during the morning and 2:03-2:33, 3:04-3:34 and 3:59-4:29 during the afternoon on school days. At all other times the speed limit is 45 mph. After public outcry and national media attention the sign was changed.

White Lake officials said the township did not install the sign, while the county’s Road Commission blamed the school district for its unwillingness to pay for an electric sign that would eliminate the need for the printed time ranges.

If lack of communication among government officials causes something like this to happen over a street sign one can only imagine what other problems are being created.
