This is a photo of a sign in another town in another state. But there is one just like it on my way to work. I pass it every day. Hitting a worker is bad. Bad. But seriously, maybe it should say, "If you hit a worker." The way it reads is like a command, "Hit a worker." Maybe it's the copywriter in me coming to the surface, but this sign is just not working for me.
And also, I'd think that if one were driving on the highway at speeds close to (or above) 70 mph, and hit a worker, they'd actually kill a worker. Isn't that manslaughter? As far as I know, that's a heftier fine than $10,000 and a lost license. Anyway, I understand that the powers that be feel the need to warn drivers not to hit workers, but isn't that common sense?
