DURING THE RECENT rare terrible floods on the South Australian flood plains, many of the lower highway signs were covered with water.
The following spring, local Councils decided to raise all the signs 12 inches at a cost of six million dollars.
“That’s an outrageous price,” said a local farmer, who then countered with: “But I guess we’re lucky the councils handled it instead of the state government.”
“Why’s that?” he was asked.
“Because, knowing the Weatherill government, they would have spent 10 billion lowering the highways!”
