Middletown, Conn., Dec. 14 (AP)–A group of sign painters were working on a billboard here this cold December day because Edward J. Hill, a police traffic sergeant, has an alert eye for incongruities.
The billboard stands at the west end of the Connecticut River bridge, looming above a Highway Department sign cautioning “slow–dangerous curve.”
The billboard legend, extolling a brand of gasoline, said “Get going–fast.”
It doesn’t say that now, however. The gasoline company, at Hill’s suggestion, agreed to change the “get going” to “Start.”
