I just read a story provided by a local outlet about outrage over a highway message. (You know the things that they can program to say ‘buckle up’ or ‘carpool’.) The message was, “Get your head out of your apps.” I’m a little embarrassed to say I didn’t get it for a few seconds. And then when I did, I chuckled. “Haha, apps instead of ass…” And I pondered over my surprise that a government organization such as the DoT was clever.
Anyway, so according to the local news, people were outraged, but in the article there was a survey, which indicated that more than 95% of respondents were totally fine with it. And that’s when I learned the lesson that you just shared from your firsthand experience.
