    Criteia for Flashing LED message board:

    nfpa will make sure that there is an appropriate font, letter size, no itialicizing, and a certain color to be used. ANSI is ensuring the sign has a break away feature so it is useful for both police and fire.

    I would think that might make the situation worse... instead of pulling over when they FINALLY notice you they would instead take 5 minutes to try reading your hood before moving over.

    Funny though.

    I guess I have to ask: Why would you think the subject of messages, like the one on the Hood, can read??...........

    I read you on that... besides, someone would just not move over and later when interrogated by the police he'd say... they had written instructions for me to not move over.
