ISD's report their school days to DOT who handle those sign postings and lights. So blame your local ISD.

Isn't it much easier to post 25mph when children are present. I hope these kids never have a minimum day they'll have to make a new sign.


many school zones here in my area of metro chicago do NOT have the flashing lights at school zones. our school zone speed signs contain..."on school days when children are present". some courts here are interpreting that to mean..."on school days when children *could* be present".


Yes they do that so it is easier for them to pull you over. if they made it easy to figure out when the school zone speed limit was in effect, they couldn`t right as many big $$$$$$$$$ tickets, and no I have never been pulled over for speeding in a school zone.

BTW, I thought school zones had a 20mph limit not 25?

And I do believe that sign was photo shopped! look at the white where the times are compared to the upper and lower signs!

Not saying photoshop isn't possible, but the white could just be that that sign is newer.

You'd be surprised how much of what's on the internet is actually REAL!!!

Here's the Guy that first reported the sign:

And here's what he had to say about it!

No one would bother to photo-shop such an idiocy because no one would believe it! Truth is stranger than fiction.

Think how much cheaper it would be to put up a sign like that posted by the OP instead of:



Timed - with flashing yellow lights at the top and bottom and also the allowable speed lit up.

I think in PA we have more money to spend than in MI (so far), but then we must go slower - unlike this sign - only 15 mph here.

There is a sign in a street in Marine City, MI that ends at the river and it has one sign that shows one way and another with No U Turn.


The image that sign creates reminds me of an old Bill Cosby routine about a stop sign at the top of a hill in San Francisco...

I have a friend of mine that was stopped in a 25 mph school zone for doing 45 mph.
He was driving a school bus full of kids! It was about his 3rd day on the job.
The cop just gave him a warning and told him to SLOW DOWN!

You had better slow down to read it.

25 MPH sounds way too fast for a school zone, 15 MPH is more typical here. I've been through some towns that leave the flashers on all day, in Texas and Oklahoma.

Reading the accompanying article, if the township didn't put up the sign, who did?
