You know, now that I think about it, I have not seen any in Austin.
I lived in Waco and Kansas and I was used to seeing them. In Kansas, the first time one of those things went off, it scared the crap put of me!
I remember looking up and saying WTH did that just say?

That's funny, I don't know how I would have reacted. I probably would have started swearing.
