HOUSTON - The Texas Department of Transportation will continue to use freeway message signs in Houston to provide directions to firearms-related events, state officials said Thursday evening.
On Thursday afternoon, local TxDOT officials told KPRC Local 2 that gun show directions would no longer be displayed on the signs. A short time later, state officials said that an error had been made.
"The decision 2 suspend use of these signs for similar future events in Houston was made in error by the district office," a tweet from TxDOT read.
The electronic signs are routinely used to direct traffic or tell visitors where to exit freeways for various events, including rodeos and sporting events.

“The decision 2 suspend use of these signs for similar future events in Houston was made in error by the district office,” a tweet from TxDOT read.
The tweet further detailed that the error is being fixed by the district office after it “emerged from the back of the woodshed, sobbing softly and rubbing its sore posterior.”
They all had rotating "Go To Jail", "No Refusal", and similar Big Brother messaging exclusively.
I suspect the reality was that some sneering supervisor at TxDOT made the decision and announced it, and *then* told the chief traffic engineer.
Shortly thereafter, when the chief engineer had climbed down from the supervisors desk after having stomped everything on it while screaming and cursing at the top of his lungs at the supervisor for several minutes, the supervisor decided that perhaps he had been too hasty.
I'm tired of paying my enemies. They will spew more vile puke months from now if not a week from now. It's in their DNA.
Tyranny ahead, drive proactively.
