You’d think with a Ping title like that, I’d rail against the speed limits of 65 and 55 I encounter on the expressway. Nuh uh. There are two really odd speed limits I’ve seen recently, and those are way more fun.
The first was at the rental car return garage at San Francisco International Airport. While going down a ramp I was doing perhaps 10 miles per hour. The posted speed limit? 7.5 miles per hour. I really wonder how that one was determined – is 7.75 too fast? How does one tell if a car is going 7.5, anyway?
The second is at a corporate corporateplex near my work. Once in the main parking lot, the posted speed limit is 6 miles per hour. Six! I’m going to guess that 5 was deemed “too slow”, 10 “too fast”, and the sign maker was a big fan of Jenna Von Oy.
