Political Campaigns Are Responsible For Removing Signs From Roads
Nov. 9, 2011
Political candidates are responsible for picking up their signs off roadways, but if you see political campaign signs on roadways that are causing a safety hazard call the Virginia Department of Transportation's customer service center at 1-800-367-7623 (1-800-FOR-ROAD) to have them removed.
Under state law (§33.1-373), these signs may not be placed on roads, medians or right of ways, which include sidewalks or ditches, and the area between utility lines or fences on the outside edges of state roads.
On private property, campaign signs should be taken down within 15 days after the election.
