Posting of Signs on telephone Poles its not legal and dangerous
The reason they present a danger to any utility worker who needs to service the pole by means of climbing it with spikes .Even not climbing a pole presents hazards to utility workers who have to pull them off and deal with all the staples and nails used to hold the signs.
Also in many states you are not allowed to post any type of advertisement with in 25-50 feet of the roads right away. with out permision.
This is why you now see political signs that use a simple metal stake arrangement so they can be put up and taken down with out endangering the public.
Besides the danger they pose to workers many signs are not properly fastened either to poles and become dangerous flying objects during Windy storms of any type blowing onto the roadway and vehicle windshields .
People who put signs on poles are pigs because they will not get proper signs and pay for proper advertising and in general create a littering mess and a traffic hazard while parked and posting the signs and really do you want to do business with a person intent on breaking the law?
