Investigation Underway After Traffic Sign Displays ‘Safety Of All Lives Matter’


The Melrose, Mass. Police Chief has launched an investigation over an electronic traffic sign that said “all lives matter.”

Yes, traffic safety signs that value lives now actually warrant an investigation.

"The phrase 'All Lives Matter' is a trigger," Mayor Paul Brodeur told WCVB-TV. "It does not lead to an atmosphere where we can make progress, we can have uncomfortable conversations and try to move it forward."

The mayor has ordered an investigation after a police officer typed the message into the sign, which was discovered earlier this week.

The Police Chief says the traffic officer who typed the message in to the sign did so without any malice or political intent.

A Melrose resident who was parked near the sign told a WCVB photographer that the sign featured the following message: "The speed limit is 25 mph. Please drive safely. The safety of all lives matter."
