About a month ago, one of Roadguy’s many bosses gave him a new memory card for CrapCam. It has four times the memory of the old card, and that means that four times as many poorly-composed photos can accumulate before Roadguy even thinks of clearing things out. So in an effort to lighten the load, here are five extremely random pictures for your Friday.
First, here’s a way that Roadguy is pretty sure he doesn’t ever want to be honored:
I’m all for remembering the fallen, but when’s the last time you ever heard anyone say anything nice about an interchange?
Next, another photo from the West Coast, filed under “things I’m glad we don’t have here” (or at least I don’t think we have):
Nothing says “welcome to the freeway” like coils of razor wire. They’re apparently there to keep purveyors of graffiti from scaling the poles.
As long as I’m offering California photos, here’s proof of that state’s high fines for HOV scofflaws:
That’s a lot of trips to Chipotle. Roadguy was very inspired to behave.
Closer to home, one of Roadguy’s many bosses (not the one who gave him the memory card) asked him one day about the “green stuff” that road crews spread on dirt, so Roadguy took this photo near the Crosstown:
It’s so … natural-looking. Roadguy assumes it’s some kind of grass-creating mixture, but he doesn’t know, and MnDOT’s a little busy for such questions right now. So if you have knowledge, please share.
Finally, as we’ve all learned in the past few months, redundancy is a good thing in bridge design. But is it a good thing on road signs?
This was near the 10th Avenue Bridge shortly before it reopened. (And you just know that some permit-less parker tried to tell a judge that the sign was ambiguous.)
Speaking of redundancies, to all a good weekend, and a good weekend to all (especially to those who leave comments below).
