traffic post

Keizer, Oregon

In July 2007, Residents of Keizer, Oregon, complained about the erection of this traffic post in their sleepy town. The thrust of their argument was that something about its shape was offensive to the bedroom community.

The object’s shape may actually allude to the scepter that is a traditional attribute of the fool.
