CitySpeak: Lime Alert

Defining this week’s media buzz-word or phrase

Lime Alert
n. A sig-alert like announcement used to warn drivers that a lane or lanes of road are temporarily blocked by a load of the citrus fruit. 

Lime alert! A truck carrying a load of limes overturned on the northbound 101 Freeway near the 170 Freeway interchange Thursday morning, resulting in a backup that extended from Studio City to Pasadena and a hazardous mess that had to be cleared with high-pressure hoses.
