One thing I've noticed about Florida -- I've never seen so many signs in the public right-of-way as I have in the Orlando area. "Work From Home," "Lose 20 Pounds in 10 Days," that sort of thing -- on telephone poles, in median strips, everywhere.
The small town where I work as a planner has a "zero tolerance" policy for signage in the public right-of-way. The streets there were wonderfully devoid of signage, save the occaonal FSBO sign, until last weekend, when a bunch of "Erase Bad Credit" and "Lose Weight Fast" signs popped up. I've got most of 'em down, but some are up quite high -- we might have to get the bucket truck out to take care of 'em. I want to get them down fast, because such signs seem to breed like rabbits.
I'm wondering if anyone has had any success tracking down the folks responsible for posting these signs, or if anyone actually caught someone in the act of placing such a sign in the ROW.
