Not sure how old the site is, but didn't see it posted anywhere that I could find using search function

Dragon Awareness // Blount County Sheriff's Office

some interesting info, but obviously lots of Rhetoric as well.

Safety=knee down? Odd choice of a graphic for the home page.

Simple fact. Almost all of the serious injuries and deaths that occur here are riders from out of state where the roads are straight and flat.

Yeah, my take from reading it was basically this:

We know your gonna come, we know your gonna speed. Here are the facts, take them for what it's worth but don't say you didn't know.


I mean they basically go through what they are going to ticket you for etc.. which is nice really.

But in the end I agree it's funny to have that type of graphic, maybe they figure it will grab your attention and make you actually start to read it.

Fixed that for you.

The site struck me as a pretty balanced and reasonable. How well that relates to their enforcement I don't know but I'd guess their tolerance for shenanigans goes down as the crash count goes up.

My take away from it was:
"We know why you're coming to visit and that's cool."
"Don't be an asshole on the straights"
"Don't treat both sides of the road like it's all your lane."
"Don't be making sketchy passes"
"Don't be the dumbass who rides over their head"
"Don't be so busy showing off for the photogs that you end up on the Killboy fail pic page"
"Bring your wallet if you choose to ignore the above"


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

I like your take, that was the point I was trying to convey, yours is just much more thought out and well spoken I typically type as I think and then hit send and figure screw it, people will either get it or not. I may have to quote your take on this.
