You are driving at 80 mph and right after a sharp turn you
pass a roadsign marking the beginning of a town. Since you
don't want to go over the speed limit in the town, you have to
immediately step on the brake which means higher fuel
consumption, higher noise, more emissions, etc.
a "Foot off gas" road sign placed xxx feet before
every town sign. Drivers don't have to use brakes any more...

These were extremely effective while I lived there, but they went away.
