The information warning signs, many with messages like ECLIPSE TODAY – EXPECT DELAYS probably reminded people about potential traffic congestion. The thing is, the highway department hasn’t taken down the signs. They were still there yesterday and this morning.
One wonders how many drivers think there’s another eclipse coming. That would probably be the same group who had to be warned–in the eclipse tips category–don’t wear your eclipse viewing glasses while driving if you’re on the road during totality.
Meanwhile, the funniest sign I’ve heard about so far is this one from the Iowa DOT:
I’m sure people were texting and driving during the eclipse. GOSH IT SURE IS DARK. CAN’T EVEN SEE ANY TRAFFIC. Duh.
We enjoyed the eclipse along with totality’s chorus of singing tree frogs. Hope you had a great experience as well.
