People complain that the New York State Experience roadside signs are an eyesore, a driver distraction and an obvious ploy for businesses to pay to advertise on the website [“ ‘I Love NY’ signs halted,” News, Feb. 7].
Well, now you can add another attribute: dangerous. I rode south the Meadowbrook Parkway and saw one of these signs mangled on the ground. It’s reasonable to believe a vehicle was also damaged and its occupants endangered.

I see nothing wrong with the state’s information signs along the highways. They are not hideous in any way and certainly are not a distraction to drivers. They make me think about the good things that New York State has to offer.
If people don’t want any more signs, fine. But I feel the ones that are in place should remain.
Better to worry about the highways themselves and the tidiness of the surrounding areas.
