Watchdog Journalism: Newspaper alerts Department of Transportation to ‘MILF’ sign

“The state Department of Transportation wasn’t aware of the [MILF] situation when contacted by the Gazette earlier this week,” but now promises to change the word back to “mile” within a few weeks, reports the the Daily Gazette of Schenectady.

“It’s not safety-related, which would obviously be a higher priority,” [DOT spokesman Ryan] Viggiani said. What has probably happened is that a strip of the magnetic tape that makes up the sign lettering has fallen off, he said.

“It is interesting, I have to say that,” Viggiani said of the re-wording. “I think people can use their common sense as to what its supposed to mean, but we wouldn’t leave it there forever, either.”
