Rand Simberg links to a story supposedly about redesignating a proposed Interstate Highway from I-69 to something (anything) less, umm, suggestive. Despite the fact that this appears to be a hoax, there is a real world precedent.

In New Jersey, there was (and is) a highway running from Trenton up through Flemington to Clinton (in NW Jersey). Back in the 60s, they had to change the number from Route 69 to Route 31. It wasn't the prudes or even the snickers that got them to make the change. It was the fact that every male college student in American stole the signs.

And when you compare the rather dull signs that NJ uses, you can imagine what would happen with badge shaped red white and blue signs used for interstates.
