    Starts & Stops

    Mass. highway signs perplex, and vex, some motorists

    The cryptic sign had been up only a few hours when reader Laurie Shapiro spotted it on Route 128 during her commute from Arlington to Wellesley. “Stop forest pests,” it said, flashing on a programmable message board. “Don’t move firewood.”

    Could it be a hack? Was a line missing? What did it mean?
