I’m just sayin’

So I’m on my way to the warehouse this morning, on I-65, and the digital sign over the interstate says this: Air Quality Alert/Consider Carpooling.

Really? Everyone who is reading that sign is already in their car. Probably alone. How are we supposed to carpool?

Isn’t there a better way to inform the citizenry of poor air quality and carpooling requests? When my son was in Williamson County public schools, officials would send an automated phone message when school was closing because of inclement weather. Couldn’t the same thing work for other alerts? That would presume that Davidson County communicates with other counties, which might be a stretch.

I realize this is not an earth-shattering problem, but it seems a little silly to spend government money advertising something that cannot be accomplished.
