Republican Buesgens’ Bizarre Highway Sign Proposal

Do you drive in the left lane and have a hard time seeing signs that are posted on the right hand side of the road?  Representative Mark Buesgens feels your pain.  Most members of the Minnesota House however, don’t.


Pity.  If Representative Buesgens got his way, Minnesota highways would be dotted with more signs, probably keeping local sign makers in business in this down economy.


However, it isn’t economics that was motivating Buesgens.  It’s those slow “Iowageans” who won’t get out of the left lane.  He wants signs on the left hand side to tell them to move over.


His amendment to the transportation finance bill was easily defeated 41-90.
