Political signs illegal in highway right-of-way Political candidates and supporters are reminded that political signs or materials placed in the highway right-of-way are illegal and should be removed immediately.
The Department of Transportation stated that as the election nears, more and more political signs are being found in the highway right-of-way. Federal law does not allow advertising materials, such as posters, signs, or stickers, in the right-of-way.
State highway officials have been advised to remove any illegally placed signs that are found. Department officials ask that candidates adhere to the law to avoid legal sanction.
