    It’s a “trick question”?????? One would thing the city fathers would take care of this……..sun-fade does have a way of changing things!!! LOL!

    Color ID doesn’t work so well when faded. I suppose that is why the word is there as well.

    Maybe the engineer that put the sign up was colorblind????

  4. Wow, it almost matches the sky as I see it on my computer screen. Heh.

  5. If you look at the street sign green, that is green, so were they out of green for the other sign when they made it – WOW?!? I had Wiley E Coyote dart out in front of me on the way to work this morning. A few weeks back on that road a 400+ pound male bear was hit and killed. Like a regular migration pattern going on in my hood. Bear, coyote, deer – Oh My! Be Safe On the Roads. Happy Weekend 🙂

    Maybe like red is the new black, blue is the new green?

    That’s confusing – and making everyone feel like they’re colour blind xx
