Street signs are meant to help drivers, but a particular sign outside Detroit is leaving them scratching their heads.

The sign lists six different time periods when a certain speed limit must be obeyed.

Drivers say the sign is extremely confusing.

Such signs are legal, and the school district says they're designed for safety because there are three different schools nearby. The six different time zones focus on the starting and ending times for those three schools.

Officials are working on a yellow flashing light or a digital speed limit sign to replace the current one.

However, the less-confusing solutions come with quite a price tag. The digital speed sign or flashing light could cost up to $50,000.

City and school officials are planning to meet sometime this month to discuss the sign.
