Signs on Public Property Could be Illegal, MDOT Says

Mississippi Department of Transportation reminds candidates that at times, posting signs on public property is illegal.

The agency said in a statement today that it is charged with maintaining federal standards, which call for the removal of any signs, structures or other obstructions that occupy the highway or interstate right of way.

MDOT says, “…putting campaign signs on public lands is illegal and contributes to MDOT’s $3 million a year battle against litter,” and they caution candidates to be aware of the laws before placing their signage.
