SIGN OF THE TIMES SAYS, `KEEP IT AWAY FROM ROAD’

SHARE SIGN OF THE TIMES SAYS, `KEEP IT AWAY FROM ROAD’

It's that time of year again - leaves are turning brilliant colors, temperatures are cooling and signs advertising everything from political candidates to garage sales are sprouting along state highways.

Utah Department of Transportation officials are issuing their annual reminder that signs cannot be placed within the highway right-of-way without proper permits.The signs are not only considered an eyesore by UDOT, but also a potential safety hazard since illegally placed signs can reduce visibility and obstruct regulatory signs.

There is also considerable time and money spent removing the signs, which are destroyed.
