A detention pond? Really???

I first thought it should have read retention pond but there is such a thing as a detention pond. Learn something new every day! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detention_basin

Wow! Thanks. I thought maybe the driver had to write a driving rule 100 times. :)

Should have had to write 100 time; "I will not knock down PACE BUS signs with my car".
