    Default Feds show no 'Love' for New York roadway signs



    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) ó The Federal Highway Administration isn't showing any "Love" for some tourism signs along New York highways.

    Officials with the FHA and the New York state Department of Transportation will meet next month to discuss the removal of more than 500 "I Love NY" signs from state roadways.

    Highway Administrator Gregory Nadeau will meet with DOT Commissioner Matt Driscoll at the FHA's Washington office sometime in December to formulate a plan for taking down the signs.

    The FHA has threatened to cut nearly $1 billion in federal funding to the state if the signs aren't removed.

    State officials have long contended that the signs help promote tourism and provide valuable information about New York's attractions.

    FHA officials say the signs don't conform to federal standards and are dangerous because they contain so much information that drivers can become distracted.

    I was in New York in October and there were wine trail signs all over the place. I have to admit, I was distracted.



    I wasn't driving, though. Mr Animal doesn't let me drive.

    But yet MA has a $#@!load of electronic signs all over the roads, barking orders at you as your diving by. And they don't even spell it right. But that's not a distraction.
