A community near Wallburg, High Point and Kernersville is sick of people stealing their road signs.
The signs on the Davidson County side are equipped with RFID and GPS tracking for any future thefts

There was a similar situation near Wilmington (not far from UNCW's campus) with a road named "Hooker Road." Some of the wayward locals thought this was make good decor, so this was taken quite a few times.

Evidently, the city or state DOT decided to invest in a more permanent monument posted into the ground, as you see here:

I wonder if this is also an issue here:

Some years back NJ rt 31 was called rt 69 and people kept stealing the signs but I can't figure out why.

There's a PA 666 route where the sign is gone most of the time.

Don't forget Bird-In-Hand.

If you want to widen it to town names that get a snicker, there's always Hell, Michigan.
