This is just one of the unusual signs that I saw in Texas on the way back to Tennessee.

This was the first time that I have seen such a sign.

On the top of the sign is a blinking blue light.  On each side of the blinking blue light was a still camera and a video camera.

Guess it must have taken a photo of me while I was taking a photo of it.

A marked law-enforcement car followed my sister Janice and I, for several miles.
