I was driving this earlier today. Thirty-what?

It's not super terrible, recognizing that what appears to be a freeway is approaching a traffic signal in less than half a mile. But I could see 40 or 45 being a bit more palatable.

Problem is, traffic was still flowing 60+. Even in the other direction - no signal in sight - it's signed at 45, flow about 70. But a 35 sign when I was almost being run off the road at 55 is never good.
