Why did the three nuns cross the road? To get to their jobs on the other side.

But a Massachusetts shrine where the nuns work wants to make it safer for them so they've proposed installing an illuminated "Nuns Crossing" sign.

The nuns work at the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette in Attleboro but live in a house on the opposite side of a busy road.

The city earlier spurned the shrine's request for a crosswalk, saying the location didn't meet government guidelines.

The Roman Catholic shrine, which attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims, now proposes a sign programmed to display a "Nuns Crossing" message when triggered by a nun's phone. The shrine is also adding a light on its property and giving the sisters reflective vests.
