(LANSING, Mich.) -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is reminding election campaign officials and property owners to adhere to state regulations when putting up political signs across the state.
"We want to create an environment that's as safe as possible for motorists and pedestrians," State Transportation Director Kirk Steudle said in a statement. "Every year, some political signs are placed too close to the roadway and block the view of motorists."
Some of the regulations regarding the placement of political signs include:
- Signs must be placed more than 30 feet from the edge of roadways without barrier-type curbs
- Political candidates are responsible for obtaining approval from property owners
- Signs must be removed within 10 days following an election
- Any illegally placed signs will be removed by MDOT
