Beware of Falling Flags

Apparently the Massachusetts Highway Department wants to remove all of the flags and troop tributes on highway overpasses.

State officials said they are concerned the flags and signs could fall on drivers, causing a crash.

"We can't avert our eyes from a known hazard," said Paiewonsky, who estimated that hundreds of signs have adorned bridges over the state's 9,000 miles of highways.
Hmm... Beware of falling flags?

Perhaps the MHD should be more concerned with preventing any more falling slabs of concrete from killing commuters inside their huge pork-barrel project.
