Kentucky: No campaign signs on highways

FRANKFORT, Ky.(AP) - The Kentucky Department of Highways says
campaign signs that are placed on a state highway right of way will
be removed for safety.

The department warned political candidates in a news release
that highway crews have been told to remove the signs through the
election cycle.

Acting State Highway Engineer Steve Waddle says the signs are
hazards for drivers becuase they block the area reserved for
motorists who run off the road.

Waddle says they are also a danger to maintence crews who handle
roadside mowing.

Illegal signs will be taken to the state highway garage in each
county and kept for two weeks. Owners may claim them by showing
identification and completing a claim form.

Unclaimed signs will be discarded.
