Dependable Erection

That was then, this is now

Durham Police chief Jose Lopez commenting on electronic billboards on the Interstate back in July:
“This is my professional opinion, not a personal one. There is no indication billboards cause accidents. It could only help in getting law enforcement message across.”

Durham Police department statement yesterday in response to a 17" x 22" 3 foot tall sign on a neighborhood surface street:
We fear that these signs could be a distraction to even the most law-abiding motorists and possibly cause collisions.

A request to DPD spokesperson Kammie Michael for a comment on the apparent discrepancy has so far gone unanswered.

UPDATE: Kammie Michael has responded with a note saying she has referred my question to Chief Lopez directly.
