Campaign Signs Prohibited On Highways

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) reminds all Hoosiers that campaign signs are prohibited from federal and state highway right-of-ways according to Indiana Code (IC) 9-21-4-6.  INDOT personnel are required by state law to remove all unauthorized signs within the state right-of-way. INDOT personnel will remove campaign signs and other illegal signs from rights-of-way—per IC 9-21-4-6—as they are encountered in normal highway maintenance activities.  Crews may also remove a specific sign if it presents an immediate safety risk, such as being too close to the roadway or creating a sight obstruction.  Campaign signs placed off the right-of-way will not be removed.
