I've seen school zone speed limit signs that just say SPEED LIMIT 25 WHILE BLINKING, accompanied by a blinking light. That wasn't feasible?

This is the kind of idiotic street signage you end up with when two diametrically opposed groups oppose each other. One group is the "protect the childrun" types who want the SL set low when a child is anywhere on the school property. The other group are the people who (usually) live on the road and dislike having to drive 25mph because the school is open.

So, some city bureaucrat decides this is what will make everyone happy; very specific, precise times when the SL is in effect. Except, it won't make anyone happy, plus it is unsafe; by the time someone reads through all those conditions and determines if the time falls within one of them, they've probably become distracted from driving their vehicle for 5-10 seconds.

Just put up a flashing sign, idiots.

I was in a car wreck and a robot saved me instead of a little girl because I had a better chance of survival. To this day I still hate robots.
