Thickly Settled

Cape Cod Sign
Cape Cod Road Sign

New England signage takes a while to get used to.  I found this “Thickly Settled” sign on Cape Cod, and it’s a good example of parochial road signs.

Are they talking about the hedge?   I mean is the area overgrown and visibility is poor so please slow down?  Or the road; is the area full of “road hogs” so please be careful?  Or, is the ground so compacted that you dare not leave the pavement for fear of blowing a tire?

Heavens no, my good man, it’s a polite way of saying, “The road is narrow, there is no shoulder, lots of rich people live here, and if you don’t slow down, you WILL get busted!”

Thought for the Day:  Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.  Margaret Thatcher
