All street and road signs in the country must have letters of a height specified by the feds (which happens to be one inch higher than currently used for mot signs) and must have reflective lettering. All streets/roads/lanes/avenues/loops in the US must have these new signs in place by 2018.
Who conducted the study that resulted in this new spending program? 3M - the company that makes reflective lettering.
We don't need Wikileaks to make us look ridiculous - we are doing a fine job of that on our own! One wonders how long before we are told only double layer toilet tissue may be used....guess Charmin would do that study?
P.S. This is not a comment on any side of govt - it's about the absolute ridiculous levels we have reached. At some point there will be a place where states and cities simply say "no" - could this be it?
