Now that recreational marijuana use has been legalized in Colorado, people in Colorado like the 420 signs. I mean, they reallyyy like them. So much that they steal them. It was such a big problem that the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) had to come up with a solution.




From 9News:

A photo of the 419.99 mile marker sign, which is about 148 miles on Interstate 70 east of Denver, began circulating on twitter through the @JournalistsLike twitter account on Friday.

“So this is our way to test it out. So far it’s working,” said Amy Ford, a spokesperson with the Colorado Department of Transportation. “It’s a traffic safety thing. It’s a helpful thing to have these signs on the road. But people kept ripping them off.”



The image first appeared on Reddit.
