Let us start a list with the most common (or outrageous) lines given to a planner about why a sign code should be weakened. I will start:
- Your community should be more business friendly.
- Billboards are not dangerous. A study from the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute in 2007 supports this.
- My business cannot be viewed from the highway (when the business is no where near a highway).
- The sign your community approved in 1972 is bigger than what I am asking for. It isn't fair.
