Here's your sign

Every summer in Utah there is a massive amount of road construction. This is not something new. It's one of those things that you can count on. The sun rises in the east, and there will be road construction in Utah, you can set your watch to it.

One day last week, I was driving down a fairly busy road. This road had fallen victim to the evil ways of UDOT and was under some construction. It was in the middle of the day and there were not many cars out. We (my friend was with me) were stopped at a red light. When the light turned green no one moved. We got over to the next lane and saw the problem. A Honda Odyssey had ran over a road construction sign. This was not a little sign, it was one of the big diamond shaped signs. She was not able to move her vehicle without causing more damage. The lady driving the car next to her thought that this would be a good time to be a good samaritan. She got out of her car and tried to pull the huge sign out from under the Odyssey.

My questions are: How did the driver of the van miss this sign? Why did the good samaritan think she could pull it out by her self?

I hope you all have a wonderful, long holiday weekend. Watch out for those road construction sign, they sneak right up on you.

I leave near the accident where the lady drove down the wrong side of the Taconic Pkwy killing too many people.

Much to my dismay, my husband who drives by that exit/entrance everyday to work, told me this wasn't the first time that happened.

I think people get too distracted while driving.
