State and County Reminds Businesses and Groups About New Law Regulating the Posting of Signs

A new state law which took effect on October 1 makes signs posted within right of ways by businesses and groups illegal and subject to removal.

The State Highway Administration (SHA) regulates signs within the right of ways and advertising signs on private property adjacent to State roads according to Federal and State laws.

These signs include official traffic safety signs and informational signs - which are either regulated by State law, or maintained or issued a valid permit by SHA.

The three month grace period for those who post signs illegally expires January 1, 2012. After that date illegally posted signs are subject to removal, and businesses and individuals face a $25 fine.
