Light poles vs Signs
« on: January 18, 2022, 12:11:21 PM »


Although IMO the guide sign to the right here is not needed at this location, either the light pole should have never been placed where it is or the sign here placed in a different spot.
Every day is a winding road, you just got to get used to it.

Wonder why that is, just a waste of extra money... And there is no sidewalk.

And, the pole obscures the sign

I've thought the same about these locations in Springfield, Virginia, ever since they took the signs off the overpass and erected gantries (images are from opposite sides of the same overpass):


"You know, you never have a guaranteed spot until you have a spot guaranteed."

commenting on the Capitals clinching a playoff spot.

"That sounded stupid, didn't it?"—Kolzig, to the same reporter a few seconds later.
