All Signs Point to Unnecessary Burdens

Apr 22, 2011

Bureaucrats in Washington want to change the way road signs are formatted to improve safety. But their conflicting, unfunded mandates are creating costly and unnecessary headaches for cash-strapped local governments across the country at a time when they can least afford it.  Even Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood agrees: “I believe that this regulation makes no sense. It does not properly take into account the high costs that local governments would have to bear. States, cities, and towns should not be required to spend money that they don’t have to replace perfectly good traffic signs.”
