Darth Vader Adopts a Highway

People and organizations often adopt stretches of road, promising to keep them clean and free of litter. This is a great way to contribute to the well-being of local communities and possibly get some good publicity from it.

So it’s no surprise that Lord Vader, who always wants to maintain the good reputation of our loyal Imperial forces, has pitched in to help. He’s adopted a section of US Highway 460 in Blacksburg, Virginia.

Occasionally standing in for him will be Henry Wakley, a local resident and loyal supporter of the Emperor. He wears a copy of Lord Vader’s helmet while picking up trash. News 10 reports:

Wakley had to pass several standard guidelines, including two highway clean ups, before VDOT would agree to the sign. He convinced the agency the sign was not a joke, and he intended to take care of the highway and draw attention to the adopt a highway program.

“We’d love to have more people follow Mr. Vader’s example and help us keep the highways clean,” Clarke professed.

Drivers could soon see more than just a sign. Wakley plans to clean up his portion of the highway in his Darth Vader costume later this month.

Wakley is an example to us all to stand together so that we may crush the rebellion and restore order in the galaxy.
