See the Sign- Unreal Ordinances

Purchasing signage is a valuable investment in the success of your business.

See the Sign- Unreal OrdinancesIt is important to know the rules and regulations of your local municipality before hoisting that blinking neon sign onto your roof. Your unique sign ideas may not be allowed in some parts of the United States, and some signs may go unnoticed when these silly ordinances are enforced.

Here is a selection of ridiculous laws you may not believe made it on the books:

  • In Des Plaines, Illinois, wheelbarrows with “for sale” signs on them may not be chained to trees.
  • Don’t turn your thoroughbred into a live billboard in Vermont. It is illegal to paint a horse there.
  • Keep the beer sales in house, because liquor stores may not place advertisements for beer outside the store in Iowa.
  • You probably shouldn’t print too many of those picket signs. In Louisiana, you can only have two people picket at one location, and they must stand at least five feet apart.
  • If you had a great idea about advertising to grieving widows, don’t place your sign in the graveyard. In Maine, no advertising is allowed in cemeteries.
  • Signs on the side of a car or truck are becoming a popular advertising choice. Driving in Mississippi, however, you may wear out your welcome because it is illegal to drive around the town square more than 100 times in a single session.
  • Hawaii’s natural beauty won’t be interrupted by billboards. All billboards have been outlawed across the island chain.
  • Thinking big when it comes to your signage? Don’t worry, your sign will last in Palo Alto, California because it is illegal to skateboard on vertical services.
  • If you have constructed an artificial underwater barrier reef in Texas, budget enough money to for a waterproof sign. You must post an instruction sign right next to it on how to properly use and maintain the reef.
  • Bar owners in Nevada are required to put up certain signs when asked. Saloonkeepers must have a sign listing the names of habitual drunkards if requested by the local sheriff or immediate family members.
  • Auctioneers need attention-getting signs in Utah, because it is illegal to advertise an auction by hiring trombone players to play on the street.
  • In University City, Missouri, it may be hard to locate that garage sale your friend mentioned online. Yard Sale signs are illegal in this St. Louis suburb.
