School zones are challenging on days like Remembrance Day, where some people get the day off and some people don't. The the post office is closed, but the garbage still gets picked up.
I didn't have a clue whether the school around the corner was open or not today. Why would I know this? So, not wanting to risk a speeding ticket or a run-over junior high kid, I drove standard school zone speed. Evidently all the other motorists had gotten the school closure memo though, because they all blew by me with disgusted looks on their faces.
We need to get schools to send out a bat signal or something when they are closed for an inconclusive holiday. That would be the neighbourly thing to do.
