The M-22 logo is sold on decals, t-shirts, and water bottles. But that’s apparently not enough for some people who want the actual road sign.
James Lake is with the state Department of Transportation.
“Theft of our M-22 route marker signs has been a chronic issue for many years.”
Lake says changing the logo and making the signs harder to steal hasn’t worked. So now the department is trying something new – it’s putting the M-22 markings directly on the pavement. But that’s created a new problem. At least one person’s been spotted laying in the roadway to take a selfie with the marking.
