Do not follow. Seriously.

On my walk back from Sydney’s school, several big dump trucks and similar heavy equipment drove past me. I noticed several of them had signs on the back that said CONSTRUCTION VEHICLE DO NO FOLLOW.

People were totally following them though. The sign didn’t really seem to affect anyone’s driving decisions even a little.

Just once, I’d love to see someone notice one of those signs and go HOLY CRAP!!!! and realize they’re being commanded not to follow and just spin out then and there like Starsky and/or Hutch and drive off in the opposite direction as fast as they can with a cloud of dust and gravel trailing behind them until you can’t see or hear them any more.

Maybe I’ll even be that person some day, “be the change” and all that.
