A story in the Estill County Tribune from Irvine (pronounced "Ervin," not like they do in California) discusses new MUTCD standards for reflectivity that are being forced upon the county government.
The county judge-executive (a friend of mine, by the way) discussed the standards at a recent fiscal court meeting and said the county has three years to replace first its stop signs, then road name signs, that meet the reflectivity standards.
But he also said that private businesses will also be required to replace their signs with ones meeting the reflectivity standards.
Huh? Can the feds do this?
