I noticed this conflict in rules a few months ago, and meant to return to get a good photo someday. When this challenge came up, and I was thinking about what I could do, this location popped into my mind. Being the only real idea I had, it became my entry.

I wonder how many people drive past this conundrum and never notice that the city of Madison is telling them to defy the laws of physics.
