And a lot of Jeepers also appear to be oblivious to speed limits and the fact that some of the main traffic arteries traverse residential neighborhoods that used to be blissfully quiet. The city has tried dealing with it in various ways...such as lowering speed limits on several roads recently. Moab is more than a 4x4 paradise. People live here too. Be considerate. The signs are a politically correct way of saying "Don't be a noisy jerk". Throttle down in town.

Yes...I clearly understand the message and can assure you I’m not a “noisy jerk.”

The funny thing (to me, apparently) is that more than a few people use the term “throttle down” to mean “open the throttle and increase speed”... If I were to guess, I would say the majority of those you’re referring to might see “throttle down” and say “yeehaw!!!” as they pummeled the gas pedal in response.
