BARS::HOV Road Sign On Loop 202 In Tempe

While driving west on Loop 202 I noticed a HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) sign that gave the rules for driving in the HOV lane. The sign had the following numbers in it.

   +------------+
   | 2+ people  |
   | 6am to 9am |
   | 3pm to 7pm |
   +------------+

The numbers in the sign are 2, 3, 6, 7, 9.

   summation(3,6) = 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 18 = 2 + 7 + 9

   or...

   3 x 6 = 2 + 7 + 9   
      18 = 18

   or...

   (2 + 7 + 9)    18
   ----------- = ---- = 3
       6           6

I returned to Loop 202 to get a sign picture, but it was too difficult to implement safely. This picture was taken while driving east on US Hwy-60 through Tempe.

Update::25 January 2006

This road sign was submitted to RoadSignMath.com, but it was rejected because there are road signs on the other end of the gantry.
