Victoria Pike: Rant about ILLEGALLY placed roadside signs
Vicky Pike takes a hard line - as a taxpayer and landowner and safety advocate, about presumptive placement of signs on public rights of way and on private property. Hers is not a stance against signs per se as a communication medium - just about illegally placed ones. And maybe it's because she had a $600 tractor tire repair bill after a running over a stub of a stake placed on her property by trespassers.

About: Doug Beard urges enforcement of roadside sign laws
By Victoria Pike
Thank you, Doug for your concern, on the explosion of a certain type of signage littering our community. I agree 100%.
Some place the same signonly feet apart. If these signs are placed illegally on the right-of-way I see nothing wrong with pulling the dang things up and tossing them. If they are placed illegally I don't think it would be against the law for concerned citizens to take them down. I'd like to see citizens take it upon themselves and go pull them up. (Note: Sounds good - but we'd advise check with lawyers first. - EW)
I texted the number on them and told them not to post anymore in my neighborhood.
I had one person who climbed a fence and came inside on my property and nailed their sign to the tornado siren.
I called the number on the sign and reminded the sign owner he was trespassing and his sign had been removed.
Most of the ones putting signs out don't have a clue that it is ILLEGAL to put signs on right-of-ways.
With the political season coming, I urge all candidates to be sure their signs are placed legally on private property.
Don't assume it's OK to post signs on private property. ALWAYS ASK.
End of rant. - -Victoria Pike
