    Good choice, MassDOT

    By on

    It is better to take down memorials before they deteriorate or cause harm to others.

    Distraction?

    Reading signs on the highway is a distraction? Is everybody so illiterate that it takes that much attention to read a banner? Or do you just have a very low tolerance for visual input ... and generalize it?

    Given the number of texting and yakking drivers, I somehow doubt it ranks very high on the distraction scale, if at all.
