Keep It Movin' People

I stopped at a rest area in Minnesota during the wee hours of the morning.  I was jonesin' for a Diet Coke and had none in the truck.

The rest area wasn't really much - one tiny building that housed two restrooms and two vending machines.  After I retrieved my can of soda from the machine, I turned around to leave.  That's when I saw the poster above.

I thought to myself that it might be a good idea to have this information ON the highway - oh, I don't know, maybe in the form of a giant sign? - rather than hiding it next to the vending machine in a rest area.

There are lots of people who travel that don't use rest area bathrooms or vending machines.  And I think in this day and age, with all the freaking out people do about anything that can be perceived as their city, state, or country being under attack, they'd probably want to know about fiery explosions happening on power lines while helicopters are flying overhead.

Kinda hard to keep your eyes on the road with that happening.
