Q. Changes in Highway Sign Lettering Regulations
On Tuesday, August 30, 2011, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced that the Obama Administration was eliminating dozens of burdensome regulations on traffic signs which cash-strapped state and local governments expect will save them millions of dollars. The U.S. Department of Transportation is proposing that communities replace traffic signs when they are worn out rather than requiring signs to be replaced by a specific deadline. The proposed changes will eliminate 46 deadlines mandated by federal traffic control regulations.
