Hear this right…. HERE!
On the 120th anniversary of the first Speed Limit in the USA - May 1901!
EXIT 12 I-95n, In Darien, CT to Rowayton, CT Tokeneke Road and Service Station, McDonalds
"Ok Road Crew. Settle down and listen because it is now time for a Road Test. So get ready for the Fast Facts. I know what you are wondering… Will there be a reward for the winner who answers this Road Test first? Well yes indeed.
The winner gets to have the person in the driver’s seat buy everyone a round of Large Cokes at the next fill up of fuel. But don’t worry. If the driver slowly gets right to exit he can get 2 large Cokes or Coca Cola soda fountain products for free at the upcoming Exxon Mobil Service Station on I-95.
All the driver needs to do is fill up the tank with fuel worth $20 or more.
So now for the Road Test.
Fast Fact One: It’s illegal for a Hartford man to kiss his wife in public on a Sunday.
Fast Fact Two: Connecticut was the first state to impose a speed limit. That limit was imposed in 1901 and it was for twelve miles per hour. Interesting aside: in 1901 there were more bicycles than auto cars.
Fast Fact Three: Devon, Connecticut city officials found it necessary to ban walking backwards on city sidewalks after sunset. But Only after sunset. Also, in certain towns it is also illegal to cross the street while walking on your hands. So just forget about it.
Fast Fact Four: here in Darien Connecticut, you cannot wear pink jackets, bright yellow pants, madras suits, nor sear sucker after Labor Day or before Memorial Day. Such preppy clothes can only be worn during proper Summer months on pain of banishment.
Just kidding. But you get the point. Darien is very preppy. Think Ralph Lauren commercials. That is because Darien Connecticut is a number one consumer of brands such as Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, and Vineyard Vines whose headquarters is in nearby Stamford.
Now, for the Road Test. How much fuel do you need to buy to get the 2 large Cokes? You have two seconds. Two and one. If you said “Just $20,” you win 2 free cokes at the Upcoming McDonalds.
But don’t forget to bring in the receipt after you fill up. And tell em RoadSpoke sent you. Exit now.”
