Lives may be at stake, but not that at stake. The federal government has revised its plan to switch to lowercase street signs: instead of requiring all signs to change by 2018, for a total cost of $27.6 million in New York, the city's 250,900 signs are now just required to be replaced with lowercase ones when they wear out. The reasoning is that all-caps signs are harder to read and cause more accidents. [NYP; previously]
