Placing signs or objects in highway right of way is a misde- meanor violation punishable by a maximum $1,000 fine and/or 90 days in jail. Highway rights of way include driving lanes, shoulders, ditches, clear zones and sight corners at intersections. State law also says that signs and other items may not be placed on private property outside of the right of way limits but in proxim- ity to a roadway without consent of the landowner. Mn/DOT crews will remove all signs within the right of way with- out notice. Large items commonly found in rights of way include cars and other vehicles, boats and motors, campers and travel trailers, com- mercial stands and large bales of hay. These objects: Present safety concerns, inhibit proper drain- age, catch debris, restrict mowing, spraying and other road mainte- nance activities. For information about roadway regulations, right of way boundar- ies or where to find signs and items that have been removed, contact your local Minnesota Department of Transportation Office. ..... i .........
