They are wasting our tax dollars

Ever seen one of these ? They are one way how our taxes shouldn't be spent. Why you ask, read on...

Firstly, if I needed to know what my speed is I have a tachometer right in front of me, take a peek and I can tell you my speed right away... I did not ask for and do not need a second opinion. How would you feel if someone held a board on their hand on the sidewalk and displayed your weight ? And these things shamelessly flash if you are over the speed limit. Apply the same idea to the "weigh-in" board, board starts flashing if you are a fa.... (oooops can't say that word anymore) bubbly person.

Anyways, whenever I see one of these things I have a flashback to the early days of console gaming, put the pedal to the metal and try to get the highest score . Sometimes the board flashes so fast I think "now it's gonna blow"... I know I'll blow one of those things sometime soon, if not I'll die trying

So, what is the purpose of these things apart from amusing me ? Nobody slows for them, they can't give you tickets from them, and as most are solar powered, they can't even amuse you on a cloudy day.

I say, roadside speed display boards are the biggest waste of our tax dollars, it is the way "the man" is happym; us... do away with them !!!

Would rather enjoy the passing by and posting your weight board...outside of any fast food joint...
