Running the red light

Kingston abounds in roadside exhortations.

Scripture billboard
Some go for a minimalist approach.

The reference is a call for peace and calm.

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

Rhymin signs

My favourite road signs are the calls for good civic behaviour through simple rhymes.

Put them to music and Lou Reed could sing ’em.

The eagle-eyed might spot the scripture reference stuck on the middle sign. Leviticus 20:13. Don’t ask. You don’t want me to get started on that one again.

Meanwhile in Grants Pen, our own private ghetto, I caught this jaywalker in flagrante delicto.

  1. I’ve never understood the whole bible-reference-poster thing. Talk about preaching to the converted. No-one who is not already an avid bible reader/churchgoer is ever going to recognize the reference, and no-one who does not already read the bible on a regular basis is ever going to go and look it up. Which leads me to the conclusion that such messages are intended to be exclusive, and are not part of any campaign to spread the good word after all.
