News : MoDOT reminds to keep "right of way" clear of signage

The Missouri Department of Transportation is reminding the public that state-owned right of way must be clear of objects, including political and other yard signs. Placement of yard signs can, according to MoDOT, create safety hazards by blocking visibility needed by motorists to drive through an area or enter or exit area driveways and streets.

In other situations, the placement of a sign can become an obstacle for a driver to avoid in the event that they must exit the roadway in an emergency. MoDOT adds that the signs can make it difficult to mow and maintain right of way, and notes that it is dangerous for those people that are installing and maintaining these signs, in close proximity to moving traffic.

When possible, MoDOT says they will try to identify and contact an owner before removing a sign. Once a sign is removed, it is held for thirty days and can be retrieved from the local MoDOT maintenance facility.
