A sign might have done some good...but if those drivers are that distracted, maybe not.
There is what. 3-6 feet between the Motor home and the towed. What is the IDIOT trying to merge in thinking? (Or rather can they think). I've seen big, and I mean BIG signs saying Ramp Closed Ahead, use alternate ramp just around the corner (Ok, not actual wording but the two ramps were less than a quarter mile apart and just around the corner).
Watched a couple hens in a top down convertable (I had a good view from the shotgun seat on a Ford F-350 custom), They passed perhaps 3 or 4 of those signs and finally pulled right up to the barricade with the RAMP CLOSED sign on it, best example of "When did they do that" look on their faces.
I am 100% sure a Car in tow sign would not have helped them at all..
Used to be a "Flasher" (no, not the idiot in the rain coat, a lighted arrow that blinks) on a freeway in Detroit,, This being an area without good sound supression they used a battery powered one.. Every day they had to re-set the postion cause people hit it.. This night the crew has just replaced the batteries so the lamps are at 100% brillance.. One of the two man team gets back in the truck as the other jumps over the wall to talk to a stranded motorist,, Just as #2's feet hit the pavement on the other side of the wall WHAM.. Idiot slams into the flasher, Batteries go flying (Thankfully the worker ducked so the wall took the hit, not him, and the other one was inside the truck, which took damage as well.
Some folks.. The only sign they respect is the one that says "All Ye Who Enter Here, Abandon All hope"
And I am not sure they will understand that one.. at least not for the first thousand years or so.
