I was driving down the road and about to enter the highway when I noticed something odd.
Right where the on ramp merged with the existing highway, after the traditional symbol indicating this, there was another sign: the basic pantomime symbol for "No Left Turn".
Now, is this really a problem?
I mean, on one hand there is bound to be someone at some point that immediately thinks that the moment they start to get on a freeway or highway, that they can take and switch over to a faster lane, which most of the time is the one on the left.
But as they are entering, how many drivers suddenly want to make an actual left turn?
After all, it's not like you have alternate directional choices when you get on.
Couldn't they come up with a better symbol to indicate not to switch lanes so soon than "No Left Turn"?

Meanwhile, here is our resident comedienne Ms. Waxy Dragon (one amongst many avatars of an avid Internet user) with this week's jokes:

Where do dogs leave their cars? In the barking lot!

What happened to the frog’s car when it broke down? It got toad away!

When is a car not a car? When it turns into a garage.

And finally...
What kind of car does Luke Skywalker drive? A Toy-yoda.

Don't forget: the first (Inter)National "Don't Worry" Day is Sunday, August 2nd.
So look forward to taking a brief break from you worries. You deserve the rest!
