Of course this billboard (click) makes no sense. It wouldn't make much sense if it were on a rural highway, where it was apparently intended to be, because the motorcycle cop behind the billboard is more a creature of 50s Hollywood films and magazine cartoons then current reality. (Last time I looked, most of the traffic seemed to be on the superhighways.) But on the side of a yoga studio on Cortland Avenue, in Bernal Heights, it's ludicrous.
It does, however, conjure up the vision of a cop interrupting his downward dog pose and leaping up from the yoga mat to run outside and give a speeder a ticket. What were they thinking?
