Countdown to Impact
A friend called me while driving into DC from Richmond, and asked what was up with our speed limits because the numbers on the signs keep changing.
She could have been talking about those signs where your speed is broadcasted as you drive past, but from her description and location, I knew that she was not talking about those.
I realized that she was referring to the countdown signs for pedestrians.
"You don't have those in Richmond?" I asked.
"No," she said. It sounded a little like an accusation.
"Welcome to life in the big city," I replied.
