Campaigns Warned About Placement Of Roadside Signs

With the general election just two months away, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says highway workers are spending more time confiscating campaign signs that have been placed along state rights-of-way.

Cabinet spokesperson Chuck Wolfe says all campaign signage is prohibited in those areas.

“Anything that is placed illegally in the state right-of-way has the potential to become a safety hazard or at least a distraction,” Wolfe said.

Confiscated signs are kept for 30 days in the Cabinet’s county maintenance facilities.
