Stupid sign on beach access road Left: Sign on beach access road; photo by historymike

(Sleeping Bear Dunes, MI) The pictured sign may be one of the most needless pieces of information conceived by a bureaucrat.

It is posted near the end of an access road to the shore of Lake Michigan in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

There are, however, undoubtedly people who thought the road might carry them to Wisconsin during the winter, so perhaps the sign does serve a useful purpose.

And some county employee probably got paid two hours work for that stupidity.

Congratulations on being the most bored man in the history of men.

In Florida, we call them roads "boat ramps".

Back in Pennsylvania, we had a lot of flood control dams that backed water up over whole towns. There are several places where roads go right down to the edge of a big lake, straight through under it and out on the other side. Wouldn't recommend them as a short cut, though.
