This road sign is on southbound I-17 five miles north of the Sunset Point Rest Area in Arizona. [Note: The picture of the road sign was taken from a Greyhound bus.]

The road sign says...

   +-------------------------+
   | Rest Area             5 |
   | Black Canyon City    16 |
   | Phoenix              60 |
   +-------------------------+
   the numbers are:  5  16  60

   the math is:  5! / 60 = sqrt(sqrt(16))

   rsHwyEval:  16 + (60 % 5)! = 17
   * This road sign is on I-17.

   rsTweeLenEval:  5 * 16 + 60 = 140
   * 140 is the maximum length of a Twitter posting (tweet).

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  60 - 16 + 5 = 48+1
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  5! - 1660 = 53+1
   * RoadHacker was 53 years young when he found this road sign.

   * 5! = 120; 1660 = 66; 120 - 66 = 54
