You don’t have to go far when you’ll notice that many or most of the distances are multiples of 11, or the numbers 7,9, or 6 for instance.
If a town was around 10 miles away, why would they put the sign 11 miles away? Why not use easy round numbers?
While it’s not foolproof, it happens more often than not. Check this link of population signs in Ontario: http://bit.ly/15LmJQV

Many or most highway numbers also use the magic numbers. Is there any doubt who is in control or is all just coincidence?
