Fed Nixes Blue Lines

I mean if this doesn’t strike you as petty and silly overreach, then we need to have a talk and I need to buy you a dictionary.

A number of towns in New Jersey decided to paint blue lines in the middle of their roads as a show of support for local law enforcement (“the thin blue line”), but after the chief engineer of Somerset County sought clarification from the federal government about the practice before committing to a blue line there, they’ve found that the practice violates federal regulations on road markings. Some towns are already having the lines removed.
