The ubiquitous stop sign.
Nearly universal, the eight-sided red sign serves as a cue for motorists to, well, stop.
But many motorists blow right through them while others give their breaks a quick tap to fulfill the requirement to stop.
Perhaps its because they've become too much of a backdrop in the many signs that dot the roadway landscape.
That's why this particular stop sign near the Edgewood/Candler Park MARTA station caught our attention.
Lots of jurisdictions have laws against defacing public signs or otherwise altering them in some way.
The city of San Diego recently ordered the removal of knitted yarn and wires made to resemble a flower stem and petals that were placed on about 100 stop signs because it conflicted with California code.
The artist behind the yarn bombings said he just wanted motorists and residents to think about flowers and do something to beautify his neighborhood.
Do you think these types of public displays, which are all over intown Atlanta, are funny or stupid or just plain annoying?
