The magical changing signs of New Rome

If you take nothing else away from your visit to this website, take a look at the before and after pictures of  the speed limit signs as you approach New Rome eastbound on West Broad St.

The "before" picture was taken early last year as Jim was preparing his defense.  The picture shows his wife Dreama who is 5'7.5" tall next to the speed limit sign. The required height for a speed limit sign in a commercial district is 7'.  New Rome's sign had been too low for years.  

The after photo shows how New Rome actually complied with the Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) when Jim pointed out their error.  Jim was ticketed and convicted despite the flawed sign placement, along with thousands of other citizens over the years.  Click here to read Jim's full story.

They also figured out that their "No U-Turn" sign was upside down.
