The Michigan DOT is hoping drivers will heed new variable speed signs on I-94.
The idea behind the signs is to have drivers adjust their speed for conditions like bad weather, accidents, and dangerous stretches of road. The speed limits will, it’s no surprise, be lower than normal.
A poor score in a road safety audit spurred the idea. The speed limits will change based on info from sensors. But will drivers actually pay attention? We’ll find out!
