Is there such a street sign called "Violations Way" or something similar in your city?

I took this picture last month:

Does anyone remember the song "Electric Avenue" back in the 80s?

I remember seeing a picture of an Electric Avenue streetsign. Being a dead-end street, it had a yellow "No Outlet" traffic sign right below... Not sure if it was a real one or made up for the photo :-)

There's a street in an Industrial area of Garden Grove called "A Better Way". I'll snap a Digital Image of the sign for the group.

I've probably been on "Electric Ave." in Alhambra (not too many places in So. Cal. I haven't been through or worked in).

The "Big Tilt-Ups" area of Irvine has streets named after Tech gurus and a few machines!
Saw "Eniac" and the EEs that designed it (plus Univac) on street signs!
Also an EE with Bell Labs, involved with the creation of Transistor (1948) was a street's name too!

There is a Lies Road in Carol Stream, IL. Wonder if that's where the used car dealers set up shop?

Our power company has their office on OHM Way. And they wonder why they get resistance from the public....

In Morrisville PA, on the Morrisville/ Fallsington Boarder, there is a road called Violations Rd. Don't try looking for it on any map, it only serves two houses, and they both have approximetely (I'm not worried abot spelling) 40 electrical violations on each side. (A lot of external wiring).


Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
