Irony: Polluting the Neighborhood with Signs to Keep it Clean

Sign PollutionSign Pollution

It was bad enough when the City of Boston installed a NO TRUCKS sign on the street, but today the City of Boston Public Works Department just installed a Street Cleaning sign that's going to be valid only two more times this year, then valid starting again next April.

Couldn't they have planned ahead and put the NO TRUCKS sign on the right hand side of the street, so that they could have just added the STREET CLEANING sign to the same pole?
