Election Signs Banned In SD Highway Rights Of Way

October 24, 2012, 5:37 AM


The South Dakota Transportation Department is reminding people that political campaign signs cannot be placed in the right of way along state highways.

The department's legal counsel, Bill Nevin, says election signs are now being placed along South Dakota's roads in advance of the Nov. 6 election. But he says such signs must be placed outside the right of way and in locations that will not create safety hazards.

Nevin says a right of way is reserved for official highway signs. All signs in the right of way that are not required for traffic control are prohibited and will be removed.

The ban on political signs in highway rights of way applies to signs for candidates and ballot issues.
