I pass this sign every day and thought maybe for a joke, someone painted in the dot and the zero. But no, it’s real. It is warning us of a one lane bridge ahead. There is another sign just like it on the other side of the bridge warning drivers coming from that direction.
It seems awfully precise. I don’t recall seeing other road signs that measure miles out in hundredths.
There were a number of people who were involved in this. The person who ordered it from the sign company, the person who made it and the folks who put it up where it was supposed to go.
I wonder if any of them considered how far .02 miles is. It’s only about 100 feet. The bridge is a bit farther away than that. They must have put the sign in the wrong place.
