Sign language can sometimes be as confusing as the spoken word, as is the case with this electric charging station in Petaluma’s Keller Street Garage. Do that many handicapped drivers own electric cars, or is Petaluma just an accessible community? You decide. Road Warrior has asked but hasn’t yet gotten a response.

Updated July 15: Officer Walter Spiller of the Petaluma Police Department’s Traffic Unit wrote to say: “The signage is confusing for sure.  I spoke with one of our parking enforcement officers who informed me both can park here.”

We’ve all been tempted to take matters into our own hands, and on some rural Sonoma County roads, homeowners do their own road repairs. But Ron Chane of Fondren, Miss., earned the nickname “Pothole Robin Hood” after he and his girlfriend began making clandestine fixes on local roads and spray-painting them, “Citizen Fixed.”

Don’t try this at home, though. According to a report published on Mailonline, he’s now under investigation for stealing the asphalt from the city of Jackson, Miss.

Reporter Helen Pow quotes Chane as saying, “We’re sending a message that as citizens you have to sometimes take matters in your hands, in a creative and constructive way.”

Thanks to Craig Harrison for sending this our way.
