things that are dumb: SIGNS OUT OF CONTROL

This Cash for Cars type sign was pasted onto

the back of a DOT truck route sign at 69th

Street and Grand Avenue. The condition was

called into 311 on September 21. The following

day, we received a response to the 311 complaint:

The Department of Transportation inspected the

condition and opened a repair order. Repairs of

this type are corrected within 180 (120 Biz) days

from the date of inspection. It takes 1 day to get

an inspector out there, but up to 6 months to correct

the problem? Furthermore, do any of these

folks who hang professional-type signs ever get

caught or fined
