Go slow

As much a statement about the pace of life in the countryside as it is about negotiating a bend in the road, this combination of roadsigns are all but superfluous on McCornack Road, just a few miles from my home in the suburban Chicago city of Elgin, Illinois.

Hardly anyone passing this way is in a hurry, else they would have taken the four-lane road that crosses McCornack or, if in a bigger rush, the tollway a little farther to the north.

No, you come this way to take life slowly, with or without a sign to tell you.
