A few weeks ago a section of Highway One called “Devil’s Slide” was closed indefinitely, forcing almost all coast-to-peninsula traffic to take Highway 92 to and from Half Moon Bay, shown above. The westbound traffic is a nightmare during rush hour.
Note the concrete barrier and the line of sight dynamics of this placement, a freewayblogging classic: Those who can see it can’t get to it, those who can get to it can’t see it. Always be on the lookout for spots like these, particularly on divided highways.
I can't emphasize enough the sheer fun and gamesmanship of freewayblogging: The constant battle of wits that takes place between you and your opponents... Above and beyond the competitive and intellectual challenges though, lies the sheer thrill of Actually Doing Something. Even though I've done close to three thousand signs now, that thrill never goes away.
Man I love this job.
