The Federal Highway Administration

… didn’t appreciate the “Jersey humor” displayed on our electronic highway signs, so those messages have been deleted.


They put what is supposed to funny stuff on the safety notice signs here in Oklahoma once a week . Very seldom are they even slightly amusing. I guess some people like them but I just find them annoying.

We know you find the topic of satefy annoying.

A big river cuts across the north part of my area. Only 2-3 main roads going north/south spaced at about 5 miles. So you have to use these roads to move. And they put in a lighted sign 5 years ago? That never says anything. Hwy dept has extra money I guess. I suppose message would say, congestion on only road for 5 miles. Enjoy. Ain’t no alternatives.

I like those signs, especially the turn signal message.


What is this turn signal message ?

“ Nice car, did it come with a turn signal?”

All it takes is one humorless bureaucrat to spoil the party.


The article said people were trying to take pictures of the sign messages and they felt it was a practice that could cause an accident . I think they are correct .

As one of our female gym teachers used to say to a few of her less-pleasant students, “You’re like a turd in the punch bowl”.

Humorless bureaucrats (likely from flyover country).

I think our troubles with people not knowing the difference between brake and break began with those stupid give ‘‘em a brake signs. These messages are not funny or cute and are distracting. They like to use the full capacity of the electronic signs and often have to wait till the next page for the full message. At 70 plus mph this is very distracting for no reason. Give it a rest and just the facts in shorthand.

Reminds me of that business show PBS aired once a week in 60s & 70’s. I think it was titled “Wall Street Week w/ Louis Rukeyser” . He was discussing IRS regulations w/ a tax expert , answering listener questions.

Listener: Is such and such deductible?
Tax expert : Your expense can be deducted as long as it wasn’t for fun and enjoyment.
LK : We know the IRS doesn’t want Americans to have any fun and enjoyment! … lol.

Heh heh. For a year I have gotten a letter every 90 days saying she will tell me what else is needed to close out my 2018 return. She was due again in October but has gone dark. Either she gave up trying to find something or she is just at the range qualifying with her new weapon.


Missouri has these signs as well. I wonder if they will go away now.

For example, they say “Focus on the road. Keep your head out of your apps.”

It was nice act, Federal highway Administration should re-continued it

I have no idea what this act you are referring to is .
