Perhaps this letter should be written to the IDOT, because they are the one causing the accidents, and I will, but first, a local word to the wise.

The accidents referred to are people running over the reflector signs on the medians on Roosevelt Avenue, which is U.S. State Highway 61. The accidents must be at night when people don’t see the signs.

And the reason they don’t see them is because they are only to be seen with bright lights on and people don’t drive with their brights on in town.

Come on, IDOT; save yourself some time, trouble and money, and save the poor driver the cost of repairs to the front of their care and the undercarriage that was torn up by running over one.

Lower the signs about three feet so they can be seen with the low beam on. And, thanks, when you get the job done.
