Shrimpwagon can’t go one morning without seeing something crazy on his commute to work. So we’ve decided that as long as there is a picture to go with it, why not make it into a blog. So I proudly give you “Shrimpwagons Morning Commute”

Shrimpwagon shot this picture on his way to work this morning. Let’s all thank him for a good laugh.

The article I’m about to post is from Lafayette City, LA. But keep in mind this does happen everywhere. Just a friendly reminder of what can happen when you don’t have permits, or go against the grain!

Lafayette City Officials are
targeting those businesses who have illegal signs. Those being targeted
are the small advertising signs that are being put in the ground.

Inspectors go around the city to look for signs that are up not following the proper regulations.

If they notice a problems with a sign, orange stickers are put on them.
Once the orange stickers are on the signs for a certain amount of time,
the signs are pulled.

City officials say business owners could face penalties if they have illegal signs.

If a business ignores the city’s request to comply with the
requirements of the zoning ordinance, the could be prosecuted in city

We’ve seen some pretty extreme cases of excessive faith in GPS, but this may well be the first instance of the ill-advised practice nearly exactly repeating itself. As you may recall, earlier this year
a Bedford Hills, New York man trusted his GPS so much that he
apparently thought it was perfectly reasonable to follow the directions
directly onto a set of train tracks. That didn’t exactly work
out so well, for his car or the oncoming train. Now, as The Journal
News reports, another man followed his GPS onto the very same set of
tracks last night and, while he did get out in time to make a surely
embarrasing 911 call, that apparently wasn’t enough to prevent a
commuter train from slamming into the car a few minutes later, causing
an hour and a half delay but, thankfully, no injuries. Maybe it’s time
for some signs?
