Huge thank you to the "vandals"

I'm sure someone will consider it an act of vandalism, but I would personally like to applaud whoever knocked down the campaign signs by the Tide Village intersection. It was getting to be very difficult to see around the corner without pulling well into the roadway.
Is there a regulation as to how far off the roadside those signs need to be?

Yes...I saw this too. A big thanks to those who took care of this mess. Perhaps they can focus on attacking WAPA next.

To prevent accidents, I think all political signs should be transparent - just like the candidates smiling

I happened to be driving by this location the other day and saw some of the signs had been removed. It's interesting to note that only the taller signs that were obstructing traffic views on the corner have been removed and the smaller signs (not blocking traffic views) remain. Seeing that the larger signs were completely removed (and some supports broken off) makes me wonder if perhaps someone from a governmental agency removed them for safety reasons, versus 'vandals', who would have likely just left the damaged signs there.

stxrocks, that was the purpose behind the removal.

It seems Ms Christensen's people didn't get the message.
Their new sign could not be more directly in the line of sight to see to the east.
