road work ahead

I tried to rig up a little setup to take photos of this old road atlas because it’s too big to fit on my flatbed scanner

But I can’t find my tripod and without it this setup is useless :\

A poor discarded stop sign I spotted along Cleveland Avenue in Columbus.

Traffic sign pet peeve: stop signs used to mark a dead end

  1. A stop sign has a legal meaning, and that’s not it
  2. There’s already a perfectly good sign for marking dead ends: “dead end”

Speaking of things that are intended to be accessible for colorblind people: traffic signals!

Ever wonder why the “green light” is really more of a green-blue? It’s to make it easier for red-green colorblind people to distinguish it from the red light. After all, being able to tell the differences is kinda important. :P

There’s also the fact that the positions are fixed (though this wasn’t always the case), but of course that’s less helpful at night when pretty much all you can see is the one that’s lit.

You needed to know this.

Been a while since I’ve posted any roadgeek photos on my blog.

Here’s a few shots I snapped yesterday of the US 23/I-270 interchange reconstruction near Worthington, Ohio.

For some reason the abundance of covered-up out-of-service traffic signals amuses me.
