Bollards for Bozos, a photo by Rootchopper on Flickr.
This is the entrance to the Mount Vernon Trail at Northdown Road. A few weeks ago a young woman drove her SUV past the “No Motor Vehicles” sign down the trail. She tried to do a three point turn to reverse course and ended up in a ditch. This happens every year. Finally, somebody (probably the National Park Service) install a white flexpost in the middle of the trail. Oddsmakers at the Rootchopper Institute think that it’s 2-1 for somebody driving over the flexpost and down the trail within the next 12 months. Wanna bet?
