Sound Off: Covered signs

I see a lot of signs around town that are covered up with black plastic. What are the signs and why are they covered with black plastic?

Those were the signs announcing detours that went into effect on Monday for several construction projects in Lawrence, according to Megan Gilliland, city communications manager.

I have a feeling that on these the expiration date is merely a guideline.

Keeping the signs wrapped in plastic keeps them fresher longer.

According to Mark Augury, Ph.D., Professor of Signotology at University of Kansas' Department of Normal and Paranormal Signs, "The signs predict the future chaos that is going to be inflicted upon Lawrence drivers."
Augury predicted that the signs would have little to no effect on a driver's ability to plan ahead and use different routes. "Instead," he declared, "there will be daily back-ups of traffic at the detour intersections."

When asked why the signs had been covered with black plastic, Augury responded, "Why to keep them from getting wet, of course."
