Eyedropper

Call the Police

Remember when the really confusing signage at the corner of Cerrillos Road and St. Francis Drive, that inexplicably read "No Parking," had people inadvertently careening into oncoming traffic or getting slammed by the Rail Runner? Me neither. The cops in this week's Eyedropper certainly don't.



Like the Eyedropper,  they probably just look back fondly at the occasional car's hood being closed upon by the train gates. In fact, they're so unafraid of the unlikelihoods above that more than park in the "No Parking" area, they're willing to stop in the "XX Do Not Stop in Box XX" area—at a very red light.

Somehow, $20,000 worth of explicit, universal signage is not enough to keep
police car No. 293 and No. Indeterminate from stopping in the "Do Not Stop" box.  Perhaps this red-light-camera/Eyedropper warning ticket will work?


Thanks to the brave Heather C for clandestinely capturing this image.
