Cranston committee to consider legalizing undocumented stop signs

Crasnton [sic] committee to consider legalizing stop, yield signs | Rhode Island news | projo.com | The Providence Journal

CRANSTON –– The City Council’s safety services and licensing committee Monday will consider changes to an ordinance that would “legalize” some 587 undocumented stop signs and 7 yield signs.
Here in NC, our state legislators would try to make sure undocumented signs couldn't attend college and try to have them deported.

One thing it's a little irritating none of the stories I've seen, or heard (NPR), on this has asked where the "illegal" signs came from in the first place. I mean, it's not like they're weeds that just spring up if you don't treat the ground. Are they signs the town installed, but was so incompetent they couldn't keep track of? Are they signs neighborhoods somehow got installed to get cars to slow down in residential areas when the town wasn't looking out for them? (I've driven in Cranston, the latter seems possible.) If the signs are illegal, why are the police issuing tickets for offenders, only to have the courts toss them out? It's all very strange.
