Twenty Is Plenty

Hey, did you know that a pedestrian hit by a car going 20mph has about a 1 in 10 chance of dying, while a pedestrian hit by a car going 40mph has a 4.5 in 10 chance of dying?

And did you also know, given that those are averages, that an older person hit is much more likely to die than a young person (a 70-year-old has a 7 in 10 chance of dying in the 40mph scenario)?

That's why I like this sign:

It's an unauthorized use of a city pole, but it looks totally official. Good job, guerrilla sign-makers!
