A Coronado resident emailed us these photos today that show the City of Coronado encouraging drivers to 'like' the City of Coronado on Facebook and Twitter. In their email, they noted: Check out this distracting sign entering Coronado.
Does anyone else think this is an odd use of the electronic police sign coming onto Coronado? There is another identical sign near City Hall on the Strand. We have seen electronic police signs that promote safety-related messaging such as:
Click It or Ticket (wear your seatbelt)
Lower the Boom (turn your music down)
Slow Down (drive safely)
Perhaps, they are encouraging drivers to use social media to stay connected to what's going on in the city. Why not simplify it and just say: Click eCoronado.com :)
Here is their current count on Facebook & Twitter - we'll keep an eye on it to see if it starts to spike from this promotion.
