Signs Point to Where?

You might have noticed a new set of street signs around Boston. They are blue and white and emblazoned with two words: "evacuation route." The city put up more than a hundred of them late last year to delineate the various ways out of central Boston in a crisis as part of Boston's new emergency preparedness plan. And perhaps you've asked yourself, "Where would I end up if I got behind the wheel and just started following these signs?"

But you're busy, and there is no time to drive around without any idea where you're going...which is why we asked Sean Cole to do it for you.
