(The damage seen in daylight.)

The violent sound of metal hitting metal rings out in the night. A car pulling a trailer has just sideswiped the school crosswalk sign on Margaret Street.

The street is well lit by streetlamps. The crosswalk sign is bright yellow. Yet the driver didn’t see the caution sign in the middle of the crosswalk.

Fortunately the sign is anchored with a big spring. It just pops back up into place – unlike a pulpy human being.
