As political season heats up, one Texas department is reminding all of certain regulations.

The Texas Department of Transportation has sent out a press release restating where political signs may not be placed.

Texans should know that:

  • No campaign signs are allowed to be placed on or within the right of way, including on trees, telephone poles, traffic signs, and other objects on the right of way.
  • Campaign signs are allowed to be placed on private property with the owner’s permission.
  • Signs must be made of lightweight material and be no larger than 50 square feet.
  • Campaign signs may be posted as early as 90 days before an election, and must be removed within 10 days after the election.

“These laws increase safety on Texas roads,” said TxDOT Lubbock District Engineer Douglas Eichorst. “They help save lives by limiting the number of potential distractions and obstacles along state roads.”

Signs placed on state highway right of way or found to be potential safety hazards may be removed by TxDOT immediately without any prior notice. TxDOT says that violators may be charged for the removal of the illegally placed signs.
