The U.S. Federal Highway Administration is set to ban humorous electronic messages on highways by 2026. This decision is detailed in a comprehensive 1,100-page manual, emphasizing the need for signs to be clear and distraction-free. States are given two years to comply with these new guidelines. The administration argues that signs with obscure meanings or pop culture references can be distracting to drivers, advocating for straightforward messaging focused on safety, like crash warnings and weather conditions. This move will lead to the removal of various witty messages that have been popular among states like Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Arizona. Arizona, known for its creative sign contests, has expressed disappointment, questioning the necessity of federal intervention in state-level decisions.
