Several municipalities in New Jersey have taken to painting a blue line down the middle of their Main Streets as a show of support for their police and police departments. The image below is an example of that.
President-On-The-Way-Out Barack Obama’s (D) Department of Transportation has decided to take a dim view of this move.
There are many appropriate and fitting ways to recognize service to the public that do not involve the modification of a traffic control device, which can put the road user at risk due to misinterpretation of its meaning[.]
The Democrats are projecting again. Only they would think Americans are so dumb that we’d misunderstand a blue line, when road markings for traffic control are yellow or white.
One can hope that DoT Secretary nominee Elaine Chao will be able to correct this departmental culture.
