Road Signs Marked Martial Law In Effect. Found During Routine Drug Stop In Houston, Tx

ff07a464f04ce3cf611b9369b0f9e123_vice_670On January 15, 2013 a law enforcement officer in the north end of the Greater Houston area stopped a semi tractor-trailer driver, who was heading in a southerly direction, during a routine check for drugs. During a search of the cargo of the trailer, he discovered packages of road signs that read the following: “Martial Law in effect”. The driver had a bill of lading in his possession stating that this cargo’s destination was to the Department of Homeland Security.

This was just emailed to me.

Traffic signs are devices placed along, beside, or above a highway, roadway, pathway, or other route to guide, warn, and regulate the flow of traffic, including motor vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, equestrians, and other travelers.

Signs, like any other traffic control devices, must meet five fundamental requirements:

Fulfill a need
Command attention
Convey a clear, simple meaning
Command respect from travelers
Give adequate time for proper response

I hate to burst your bubble Martial law doesn’t protect the citizens it only secures the power of the government.
