A Gentle Reminder

Just over a week ago I drove from Marblehead, Massachusetts to my new home in Austin, Texas. I was accompanied by my husband Jason and our friend Conor. In an effort to avoid bad weather, we took a slightly more scenic route than we might have otherwise: All the way down the east coast and then through the southern states. We saw a lot of interesting things.

In Louisiana we drove by an informational billboard that I have recreated for you here:



Yes. This billboard really exists. It seems that Louisiana residents needed a reminder.

In a moment of goodwill, I began to consider other billboards that I could propose in an effort to inform commuters - some gentle reminders that might help to get people out of trouble before they get into it. Here's one idea I came up with:




I'll be putting my proposal together soon. If you have any other billboard ideas, please share!

Yes, these are all excellent suggestions! I won't forget them when I'm writing my proposal. WON'T.

Hey my people are just ahead of the curve-just watch in a couple of years people in Mass will be doing the same. It just makes sense really, make a buck where you can. Come on people! This is America! Capitalists Huzzah!
