Some years ago, someone in BC’s Ministry of Transportation decided that highway signs no longer needed to be secured onto a post, and they came up with signs that were just dangling on a chain or otherwise flexibly attached. As a result, when the wind really starts to roar, the signs really start to dance.
Whenever I begin the long dangerous drive to Prince George, and see these signs, slice, swoop, and swing at the side of the road, I am neither reassured, nor made to feel any security, about the highway experience before me. I guess I should be more positive and try to look on the bright side--at least these signs inform me that the wind is blowing.
