Stealing signs

So I expect this to happen, but, out of 6 signs I have out at street corners I only have 2 left. Not a big deal, just frustrating. I know I have taken some of those signs before. bah! I have 20 more to put out. Those political election signs are great with a can of spray paint.

Maybe your signs are being removed by code enforcement. Or your competition?

I caught another landscaper trying to steal one of my signs once, when confronted he took a swing at me.

I remove all of them that are on the commercial areas I maintain. Probably is code police.

I can't justify spending a lot a money on new signs when so many disappear. We have been door hanging the heck out of a neighbor then sticking a sign near the entrance of the sub division.

Not suprised they are being removed. Someone that lives near the sign or has to mow around it, is probably removing them. Find another legal method of advertising.
