Default New York must change street signs because all-caps is like shouting XD

New York City is changing all its street signs. As part of a federal mandate, the letters in the signs have to change from all-capital letters to a combination of upper and lowercase.

I think this would be hilarious if it wasn't such a big waste of money XD Personally I think that the all-caps signs are easier to read anyway. I guess if they are only replacing worn out signs that would be replaced anyway that's not too bad, but if they are forced to waste money replacing perfectly good signs that's ridiculous.

I've heard it all now. :| You'd think they would spend money on something useful.

What a waste! Like you said, if some are worn out, makes sense to replace them. All of them, though? Dumb.

Now isn't that just silly. All cap signs are easier to read. Also, I predict an increase in grammatical errors, possibly .
