The South Dakota Department of Transportation reminds the public that they should not place campaign or ballot issue signs in state highway rights-of-way.
"We're seeing a bit more activity than usual for this election," says Darin Bergquist, SDDOT's director of operations. "We're asking everyone to pay attention to where they put the signs and make sure they are outside of the rights-of-way in locations that will not create safety hazards or distractions."
The use of right-of-way is reserved for highway signage. Any sign in the right-of-way that is not required for traffic control as authorized by law is prohibited and will be removed.
