One day my daughter and I had just finished putting up about 10 signs in a small area, and up drove “Officer Friendy”. He pointed to my sign and said “are these yours?” (gulp) Yes, said I. “We have an ordinance against these signs, and we’d appreciate it if you would not place them anymore.” OK, I said. “And you can have these signs of yours in the back of the car, if you want… I have been picking them up as you placed them…” We thanked him and took the signs from the back of the cruiser.
I have had police drive by as I placed signs and they did not stop.
But two cities near me have had their Code Enforcement Officer call me and mention that the signs were a violation, and would I please stop putting the signs up so that they wouldn’t have to cite me. All right, all right.
There’s still lots of other places for signs. And I have lots more signs!
