I agree that these signs are great, but hiding them in the trees is dumb. They do seem to encourage car drivers to drive more safely in pedestrian zones.

Whether hidden by trees or not, I really hate these things.
What ever happened to common sense?
But, if we are going to have such things, why not have them be something like
1) normally white to denote the speed limit.
2) yellow when someone exceeds that limit by less than 5 MPH.
3) flashing red when someone exceeds the limit by more than 5 MPH.
As they are now they are just an irritating distraction. And I bet they cost a lot too.
Meanwhile go out to the Baylands and look at the mess. The Interpretive Center is closed. I walked out to the sort of nice new looking rebuild building SeaBees or something, and there is no public entrance, no restrooms. Who gets to go out there and work and why doesn't the public benefit from it.
If the police would just pull a few people over and warn them about their bad driving it would solve the problem.

I find these things distracting to a fault! The flashing makes you take your eyes off the road, which is unsafe at any speed. Maybe it is better that this one is hidden in the trees.
