‘420’ Becomes ‘419.99’ In Colorado … Guess Why?
Have you ever stolen a street sign that has your last name? It’s fairly normal, you don’t have to be ashamed. If you’re one of the folks in Colorado who has stolen the “Mile 420” sign along Interstate 70, then, well, yes, you should be ashamed.
Apparently the sign gets yanked enough that officials from the Colorado Department of Transportation have changed the sign to read “Mile 419.99.”
Mile 419.99 reportedly isn’t the only place in Colorado with a fractional mile marker. Cameron Pass in Larimer County has a “MILE 68.5” sign after frequent thefts of the “MILE 69” sign.
Thank you, Colorado. Thank you.
