By using comical expressions in sub-signs, like the one shown here, the city of Oak Lawn, Ill., thought it could get more people to pay attention to those pesky red-octagon-adorned posts. It seems drivers don’t like to wear their brakes out for every intersection they come across in old Oak Lawn.

There’s just one little problem: The Illinois Department of Transportation says these accessory signs violate federal law. Oops. The mayor had to have the signs, which cost $1,700, removed. Not to worry, dear taxpayer, local company 3M paid for the signs.
