Drive Friendly

I noticed a road sign on the back of the warning signs: “Bridge May Be Icy”. When that sign is not displayed, the sign reads “Drive friendly”. Even the Texas Welcome sign displayed this sentiment…

We were told today that this means to drive on the shoulder if you are going too slowly so that the cars behind you can pass you without slowing down. Watch out for anyone actually parked in this lane. (The one we call the “emergency lane” in California).

I had never before seen speed limit signs with both a maximum AND a minimum listed. (Many places were Maximum 75 and Minimum 45). We were very proud that the Dolphin was able to stay within the range listed.

Another favorite road sign of mine in Texas (that we were always driving too fast for me to snap a pic of…) alerted motorists to avoid picking up hitchhikers in the area because the prison was nearby. We didn’t see any hitchhikers clad in orange jumpsuits or otherwise.

Life lesson: Sometimes we all need a sign language interpreter.
