On Sign Reflectivity to Be Studied for $72,000
Posted on December 6 at 12:34 p.m.
The self-righteous ignorance in this thread is astounding.
There are federal regulations that mandate signs need to have a specific amount of reflectivity. The tests are quite precise.
Hiring a consultant to test the signs (1) saves money by avoiding fines for violating federal regulations, (2) saves money since the city doesn't need to buy the specialized equipment for the tests, and (3) makes an outside firm rather than the city legally responsible in case the tests aren't done properly.
As far as just replacing the signs, street signs cost between $100 and $500 each:
The article says there are 20,000 signs within the city limits. Replacing them all would cost between $200,000 and $1 million. It's better to spend $72,000 to have the signs tested, and then only replace the ones you need to replace.
It only took me a couple of minutes to find all of this on the internet.

I love posts like the one above. This guy has never thought about the reflectors on signs in his life, and suddenly he's an expert on what the tests should cost. Genius.
Most likely there are legal requirements for the amount of light each sign should reflect back under different conditions, which probably requires testing each individual sign with specialized equipment.
