[design] Redwood City CA: Funny, Slightly Sarcastic Speed Limit Signs

2310.Redwood City, California, understands one thing about delivering a message: if you do it with humor, people will more likely remember the message. On the streets of Redwood City, then, observe that this municipality likes to remind you that there are such things as speed limits with a message delivered on wry:

Yeah. C'mon, big boy, it'll still be there when you get there. Get on your big-boy pants and obey the rules.

And if you still want to speed, remember, you'll just get scheduled for traffic school on a weekend day you'd rather be somewhere else:

Are we getting through to you yet?

Thanks for the smiles and the photos to my SF Bay Area Semiotics Bureau Chief, Sharon K.
