NCDOT Signs Can Flash, But Women Can't!

Of all the transportation issues facing the state of North Carolina I find this story to be an indicator of mismanagement. State transportation officials want to make sure truckers using Interstate 77 around Lake Norman keep their eyes on the road and not on the breasts of female boaters trying to get their attention.
WCNC in Charlotte reports the N.C. Department of Transportation believes the boaters are causing traffic delays because some women flash the truckers, who slow down to get a better look (who wouldn't). As a result, NCDOT installed buoys around the causeway with signs that say no boats are allowed to stop or dock between that point and the interstate.
I don't think buoys marked with "No Boobs Beyond this Point" is going to work. The next thing you know they'll be cops on jet-skis on boob patrol (that actually would be good gig).
If NCDOT wants to do something effective how about fixing the shock absorber road test that is Nuese Boulevard in New Bern. Maybe if we measure the depth of the pot holes in breast cup-size measurements it will be addressed by transportation officials.
