BTW, has anyone noticed that a few of the posts, for the new signs, are not straight? It will really be noticeable once the signs are attached.

C'mon man, did you not have a level when you set the posts in concrete?

If you don’t know that you are traveling north or south, you probably should travel by Taxi, Uber or have a friend take you. Just saying...

As you may have noticed, when you first move here everything looks the same! What landmarks? Besides, when announced, it was said they would indicate direction.

Would you know where to go if I-75 didn’t indicate the direction?

I used to STOP to try to read the signs and that merely annoyed the driver behind me. Now I know the directions, but not everyone does. It takes a bit of time.

I always slow down and try to read the signs, but my senior eyes sometimes don't cooperate, especially at night. Better and more readable signs would be welcomed.

Or better yet, mount a compass in an easy to see area on your golf cart. It works great, compasses don't lie. And they work great when the sun is not out.
