A bit of humour: hundreds of ¨undocumented¨ stop signs in the city of Cranston, Rhode Island

I came across with this article posted at Lowering the Bar -Legal Humour- and it was really nice for me. I suddenly remembered when the Unicenter shopping mall was built in Vicente Lopez, Buenos Aires, in the middle of a residential neighborhood, and the neighbors began to block some streets, desperate them all to find some peace. And of course, to avoid trucks to access their streets. What I mean, if the signs are installed, citizens need them for sure.
¨...the city of Cranston, Rhode Island, had a puzzler on its hands after it came to the city's attention that there were hundreds of unauthorized stop signs on its streets, installed by a person or persons unknown. At the time, the mayor said his staff was still researching what to do, but that the city would probably pass a special ordinance giving legal effect to most or all of the signs. According to a report today, it is likely to do just that.
The Providence Journal reports that a committee was to meet today (February 7) to consider proposed ordinances that would legalize 587 "undocumented stop signs"¨
