  • OT Speed Limit Sign

    Not a big deal but I thought it a little odd. Left our Albany plant today and went across the street to the plastics plant to get a FeDex mailer, they have a drop box by the guard house. There is an access road about 1/2 mile long and I noticed the speed limit signs as I thought the speed limit was a little odd. I assume the reason is so people do take notice. Here is a picture.



    I did obey the speed limit.

    If that was Albany NY you gotta notice bc the locals will stop you at 32.60.

      My favorite was a sign that said, "Thou Shalt Not Park" outside a local church.

      Make it fit.

          I saw a sign that said "fine for parking", and I thought, yeah, it is really fine, and I was surprised when I got into trouble.

            I always wonder at signs that append "at all times" to the instruction, like "No Stopping at all times".
            "But Officer, I'm not stopping here at all times, just at this time."

              One of the plants I worked in locally had an odd speed limit of 7mph inside the fences and the access roads were 15mph from the road to the gates. I asked about the 7mph speed limit, at the time it was as fast as their electric buggies would go.

                I can hear the conversation now-"Fuggin donut chomper clocked me doing 32-15/16 in a 32-1/2 zone"
                I just need one more tool,just one!

                  Being Machinists, we all know that fractional tolerances are +/- 1/32.
                  So technically, you can legally drive 32-17/32 MPH, and not be ticketed.

                    That's a very clever way to get people's attention.
                    They should straighten the sign though.

                    I cut it off twice and it's still too short!

                      Is it possible that this is a private road and the 32 1/2 has something to do with the owners? The casinos like to put 21 mph speed limit signs up around their place.

                        My first thought was that 32 1/2 is exactly half of 65 mph, i.e. maybe the idea was to reduce normal highway speed by half. Just a wildassguess.

                          Why would anyone assume that is miles per hour? No units are stated, so choose your own.

                            Milliparsecs per fortnight?

                              Might have something to do with the fact that it's in PA. MPH is sort of standard there.

                              At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.
