Times: Talmudic Speed Limit Sign

A truly Talmudic sign from the Times Magazine:

Road signs in a small town outside Detroit that listed six separate times for drivers to slow down in school zones have now been replaced after residents complained that reading them created a hazard all its own. The signs in White Lake Township instructed passing cars to slow to 25 m.p.h. from 6:49 to 7:15 a.m., 7:52 to 8:22 a.m., 8:37 to 9:07 a.m., 2:03 to 2:33 p.m., 3:04 to 3:34 p.m. and 3:59 to 4:29 p.m., but, thankfully, on “school days only.” The police chief, Edward Harris, says he had nothing to do with the mess. “Our only involvement was responding to the concerns raised by a number of individuals,” he says.
