During my last interview, the VP asked me what my 3 "areas for improvement" are. When i said "my weaknesses are...", i was corrected and was told that he asked what my areas of improvement were. I gave one and blanked on the 2 others. My quick thinking led me to say, "I know I have others, but I'...

| O-T Lounge|| Speeding ticket/school zone question - CMBears1259 on 5/2/13 at 11:28 pm|
A school zone obviously has times in which the speed zone is in effect, but what limit takes precedent (I'm assuming the school zone) if there is a speed limit sign that increases the speed inside the zone itself?
School zone speed limit sign of 20MPH- Normal speed limit sign of 30MPH- End of sch...
