Gov't says street signs can stay

The Federal Government has decided not to force cities across the country to change their street signs, in a decision that will save New York City millions of dollars.

The Federal Highway Administration was requiring all cities to change street signs to a mix of upper and lower case letters so they would be easier to read.

Tuesday night, the U.S. Transportation Secretary said the expensive changes are not necessary.

New York City has a quarter of a million signs, and the changes would have cost almost $28 million.
