|This sign requires no caption|
When I saw the sign in this location, I knew what was coming next. Construction code, or standards, or traditions, or union rules, or whatever, compels them to erect this sign in this place while performing certain lane-blocking construction tasks, I get it. Right behind my picture-taking position, a high-speed resurfacing operation was underway, ground off the old surface on Monday, finished the repaving on Tuesday, and moved on. Very slick operation.
But while they work, they have signage traditions that must be upheld. So they stuck this NO LEFT TURN sign in a place where not making a left turn leaves you in an inconvenient spot. Going straight doesn't get you anywhere, unless you are a cyclist willing to cut through a loose gravel alley and up onto the canal path (me, once in a while). Going right, then turning around, sure, but who wants to do that? So when I saw the sign I knew what was coming next. I just took out my camera and waited.
After I crossed straight, then went up the sidewalk, I felt that an amendment to the sign is required: EXCEPT FOR BUSES, BICYCLES. Aw yeah. Get up. Go ride.
