A Sign of the Times?
Somewhere out in the mossy, rain drenched hills above the Clearwater River on the Olympic Peninsula lies this unique road sign; ET wearing a seat belt commanding that you do as well. Did the WA DOT and State Legislature collude to bring extra terrestrial beings into enforcing this law? Strange indeed. Stranger too when you consider that this sign lies a short distance from the Clearwater Correctional Institute. Is it meant to intimidate inmates from bolting down the road, worrying them into thinking they'll be abucted by aliens. Better that than being brisked away by some of the scarier beings that hole up in these stump-studded hills on the far end of Jefferson County. Be sure you buckle up when out exploring the Clearwater. And don't stop for strangers either!
