Andrew, for God's sake grow a sense of humour.

Jeremy
I see nothing funny/humorous about the two illustrated posts of hypocrisy or those suggestions of racism! The latter, especially considering the past and recent history of the country I happen live in.

If you want real road danger, shift to Thailand and get a scooter.

Or India, particularly if you're female. One of the things there that upset my wife was the frequent site of a family - man, woman, small child (or two) - on a scooter with, nearly always, only the man (who was driving, of course) with a crash helmet.

A statement that's wrong (again).
IF you wish to be taken more seriously, versus when you wish to your writings to be considered 'humorous" (everyone's a comedian and photographer), consider using these for the latter:
 :) ;) :D ;D 8) ::)  etc. That's why there are here, so readers can separate presumed comedy/sarcasm from fake news, from posts where you intend to have your text taken seriously.
Facts for those who have any interest in accuracy about so called 'roadside shrines'. They are called Descansos; Roadside Memorials that can be found in New Mexico, and no, not at every half mile and having nothing to do with reading.
Here's a web site of PHOTOGRAPHS (you can critique them if desired), showing examples and you'll find, if you pay attention, they were captured inside and outside NM:

DESCANSOS :
ROADSIDE MEMORIALS
ON THE AMERICAN HIGHWAY
http://webpages.charter.net/dnance/descansos/

Golly, Andrew, do you really mean to say that there are roadside shrines outside New Mexico? Whoda thunk it? And I'm certainly happy to know that in New Mexico you guys call them descansos. It's really important to know that. It helps to explain a lot. I don't think we called them that in Colorado. I think we called them "roadside shrines." Not sure yet what they call them in Florida. Probably "roadside shrines." But maybe not in Miami.

Maybe you should consider moving to New Zealand or someplace like that if you're worried about the past and recent history of your country.

Golly RLS, did you read what I wrote before asking?

Whoda thunk it?
Who's isn't thinking (before posting) is the question you should ask yourself.
Quote

Then I'm happy you're happy learning something new.
Quote
It's really important to know that.
It is, if you strive to call things by their proper names.
Quote
I don't think we called them that in Colorado.
Correction:
Quote
I don't think we called them that in Colorado.
Either again, you failed to read the web page with the photo's I provided or you believe Colorado isn't in the southwest:
THE CUSTOM of marking the site of a death on the highway has deep roots in the Hispanic culture of the Southwest, where these memorials are often referred to as Descansos ("resting places").
Or can you take the time to look up the language before posting:
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/descanso

From Spanish descanso (“place of rest, as of a funeral procession”)
Noun[edit]
descanso (plural descansos)
A cross placed at the site of a violent, unexpected death, in memoriam.
The highways of the USA are littered with descansos, silent reminders of automobile accidents.

Quote
I think we called them "roadside shrines."
You think you call them roadside shrines. You don't think for 'we'.
Quote
Not sure yet what they call them in Florida.
If you knew to research before posting, or read what I've provided, then you'd know.
Much like the current US leader, some have expressed very little effort to learn much, have shown a lack of intellectual curiosity.  :'(

Doesn't surprise me at all. Perhaps English is your 2nd language or you've never looked up the meaning of those four words between the quotes above. And more importantly, the fifth: racist. The current US leader doesn't know what that means either, based on a lot of his recorded statements on that subject.

On occasions, rather too often, I find moderating threads here is not dissimilar to supervising a kindergarten playground.

Grow up, the lot of you.

Andrew, that photograph was utterly unacceptable. Take a holiday.
