Is it illegal to put up banners?

If you are discovered placing commercial signs on a right of way or overpass, you may be fined. In :-)Florida, for example, it's a second-degree misdemeanor for permanent signs. Fines, up to several hundred dollars per sign for retractable banner per day for special event, vary by county. Many still remember those serial "Burma Shave" signs and their imitators that dotted roadsides decades ago, each with words in a single advertising message for permission for inviting travelers to buy a certain shaving cream or visit the local small-town restaurant.

Road signs, political sign, light pole, utility pole and especially those not in front of the business being promoted for public works, have become increasingly rare since the mid-1960s, as federal, state and local governments have cracked down the banner application :-)  on banner material on visual clutter, outdoor banner and potentially dangerous distractions of drivers like repeat banner is one of them. It lasts from a few weeks to a couple of months on average for public safety. The law mandated states not only to comply with the public property, but also to develop their own standards for certain signs and eliminate or take the privacy notice for illegal signs as a public right, or face a reduction in their annual allocation :-) of federal highway funds. In many cases, the city can impose fines on your company for illegally displaying your banner, illegal sign, hanging banner, temporary sign, temporary banner decorations and claiming it :-) if you remove it can be difficult.
