Do not fret, a Humboldt County Public Works spokesperson tells us. The green van parked alongside the road in Southern Humboldt is not there for a nefarious purpose. The green van is our engineering technician, explained the spokesperson. “We are looking at what speed is the safe limit for that road.”
The technician is doing a speed study on different roads in the area, she said.
As to the idea that the technician is there to bust people for speeding, the spokesperson assured us, “We are not law enforcement…If one of our employees see something that is a real danger, they might get on their cell phones like any citizen. [But, normally,] they have so much work on their plates, they don’t have time for that.”
