LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – With campaign season heating up, the area will soon be sprinkled with campaign signs. But placing campaign signs on public land is illegal. So before you stick that post into the ground, there are a few guidelines to consider.
TxDOT officials say the laws are intended for the safety of the traveling public.
TxDOT may immediately and without prior notice remove a sign placed on state highway right of way, if the sign is not authorized by state law or approved by the department. Signs found to be potential safety hazards will be removed immediately. Violators may also be charged for removal of illegally placed signs.
