Speed Limit: 23 1/2 mph

On the roads leading to the Williamsburg Sentara Hospital, the signs say 23 1/2 mph for a speed limit.

[Rachel Bicknell, 10/08/2017]

The odd speed limit is meant to get people to pay attention and slow down. It would be especially embarrassing if someone caused an accident by stopping to take a photo of the sign.
