    I'm all for safety, but retrofitting is nonsensical, and unfunded. Mr. Mayor, stand and be counted, refuse to do it, and let the chips fall where they may. Attaboy Brian Amundson.

    If that makes 'em easier to read, why have any upper case letters?:rolleyes:

    They're street signs, not paragraphs!:mad:

    Around here it would be nice if they would start by removing the graffiti from the road signs. Covers up all the reflectivity and makes them impossible to read at night.

    Here's an idea. Let's fire the idiots that have nothing better to do than dream up this useless garbage. Take the payroll $ saved and put it toward useful, as defined by the American people.... Its obvious our government is incapable of defining useful, and economics. Just my thought for the day.
