California Department of Transportation Braces for Letter Shortage
Sacramento, CA - A day after Arnold Schwarzenegger won the historic California recall election, the California Department of Transportation announced that it will be suspending all highway sign projects as it moves to replace "Gray Davis" with "Arnold Schwarzeneggar" on over 1000 "Welcome to California" highway signs. "We are going to see a serious shortage of sign letters, especially for the letter Z and the letter G," said Alfred McClintock, manager of the Highway Sign Division of the California Department of Transportation. "We also need to get sign extenders so that Schwarzeneggar will fit on the existing signs. That will probably add 10 to 15 million dollars to the current cost of the upgrade."
Most affected by the announcement was the town of Coto de Caza, which was hoping to have their highway sign fixed by the end of the year. The town sign has read "Coto de Caca" ever since 2001, when local high school student defaced the sign as a "senior prank".
