Many people know the Arizal that Yom Kippur is Yom K’Purim; it is akin to Purim. Seems like someone at the New York City DOT takes it literally.
On Yom Kippur, the DOT installed a 25 MPH speed limit sign at the corner of 16th Avenue and 45th Street in Boro Park. Anyone driving in that vicinity would be happy to go 5 MPH. This must be a Purim joke.
Point of interest: The sign is right opposite David Greenfield’s office. Is his opposition to the mayor’s 25 MPH on Ocean Parkway behind this?
