Looking for Signs

As the fall elections approach, the Department of Transportation is reminding you of the rules for placing political signs along state highways.

DOT officials say political signs must be at least 15 feet from the pavement edge.

If you have a sidewalk in front of your house, the sign must be one foot past the sidewalk.

Political signs that are less than 32 square feet and have no moving parts or flashing lights are allowed 45 days before the election and one week afterward.

The DOT will remove signs that are too close to an intersection and block drivers' views. You can be fined between $10 and $100 for signs that violate the law.
