The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

No deposit

Spotted by LilRed on the Kilpatrick Turnpike, this perhaps-misleading sign:

Failure to pay toll strictly enforced

So if you throw a Sacajawea dollar into the basket, expect to be pulled over for not failing to pay the toll.

Hey, I can dig it.

Shoot! Beaten to the punch. I was never around the computer when I was thinking about this one.

OTA needs a technical writer.

There's a state highway near here where the local sheriff's department "strictly enforces" safety violations.

We always unbuckle our seatbelts and disable our airbags when we drive onto that stretch of highway. If it's nighttime we turn off our headlights.

And of course we tailgate at 85 mph.

Wouldn't want to get a ticket, after all.

What a phrase! It's almost as good as "post-mortem health examinations"
