The West Loop is tough on street signs. I found this sign on a recent photo walk, just a block away from a similar photo taken last year:

That sign, by the way, is still in the same condition today. Chicago may be the "city that works", but evidently not when it comes to replacing street signs.
A commenter on my flickr stream suggested this could be the result of gang activity, but I think a simpler explanation is that these signs were hit by delivery or moving trucks. Or, maybe it was the wind? Or maybe that last Transformers movie was real? Nah, it's probably trucks.
