Political Correctness



As I was driving down the highway in a construction zone, I saw a sign just like the one above. I realized that I always see the "Mommy" signs, even more so than the "Daddy" signs. I decided to go for a small trip and I counted the signs. The tally was 2 for the Mommy, and one for Daddy. I think this is ridiculous. It's not that I have a problem with women working on road crews, it's the thought that they feel they need plaster these signs everywhere, even though there normally aren't any women working on the project.

Brad, great to see you getting the recognition you deserve on here.
As to the sign, whenever I see an overabundance of signs like that one (though we don't have that here either ~ Connecticut, USA), I'm thinking they're making more of a statement to the public than just offering a caution. Too much is too much of anything!

Brad, just to feel like we are all in college again, lets go steal some and change them a bit. We all know about the great efficiency of road work so how about something like.....: "My Mommy/Daddy works here for 30 minutes out of every day. The rest of the time they stand around and scratch their butt!"

Nice blog Brad.

I personally have never seen a sign such as the one you post. I don't have a problem with it however. I work for Corrections in California and in this state more Cal-Trans employees are killed in the line of duty each year than Correctional Officers. Anything that may work to get folks to pull their heads out of their behinds on the highway is alright with me.

Also, our local Cal-Trans road crew actually has quite a few ladies on it.
