A few months ago, we recently highlighted a study about the very limited effect that lawn signs have. But lawn signs have been around for a very long time and they aren’t going anywhere soon. And if you are using lawn signs, then it’s important to know the rules for posting them. How big can they be? What are the rules around putting a sign in a right of way? How about a disclaimer requirement?
Every state has its own set of laws and restrictions around lawn signs and the fines for violating them can be severe. We recently discovered a site -- a yard sign company actually but one that we have no association with – that has links to most or all of the legal requirements for yard signs in every state.
