Illinois to Oak Lawn: Stop signs are no joke

May 1, 2008

Seven months ago the town of Oak Lawn, a south suburb of Chicago, began experimenting with some humorous traffic signs in an attempt to capture drivers’ attention. Recently, the Illinois government ordered the town to remove the signs. In memoriam, some of the soon-to-be-gone signs are posted here. Oak Lawn has no statistics on whether the signs reduced accidents or stop sign running.
