MATAWAN - The Federal Highway Administration is requiring all communities to start planning now to change street signs to upper- and lower-case letters within six years.
The idea is that with upper- and lower-case letters, it's easier to read the signs. Under the new rules, traffic signs can be capital letters, but must be reflective. However, News 12 New Jersey spoke with many people who don't agree. Some see this as a waste of the federal government's time.
It's also a question of cost. Matawan Mayor Paul Buccellato says the town could never afford to replace all of its signs.
