The "I Love New York" tourism signs are about to be taken down from highways all across the state.
The Federal Highway Administration warned that the signs were too busy, and were distracting to drivers. The state put them up anyway and down they come. Keeping the signs up would cost the state 14-million-dollars in penalties from the FHA. Most of the signs will be moved now to rest stops across New York, but the first in each cluster get to stay in place with modifications.
