Political Signs Not Allowed on State Highway Roadsides

Political Signs Not Allowed on State Highway Roadsides

With Nevada’s primary elections approaching, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) reminds community members that political signage is prohibited on state highway property by state statute. Federal regulations also prohibit political and advertising signage on public highway property, including but not limited to political signs, yard sale/event signs, and realtor or business signage. 

Knowing that state road property often extends beyond the roadside, fence line, or sidewalk of interstates, freeways, highways, and urban state roads/streets is vital to public safety, as it keeps drivers' lines of sight clear at intersections and other locations. For a listing of state roadways and more information, visit dot.nv.gov and click “Public Involvement” and “Signs Rules/Regulations.” 

Signage that distracts or blocks the view of drivers could be wind-blown into the roadway, interfere with roadway maintenance, and become a safety hazard. Working on busy roadside shoulders or crossing traffic lanes outside designated pedestrian areas to install signage can also be dangerous. 

By state law, political signs under four by eight feet may be posted on private property next to state roads no more than 60 days before an election. Any signs posted on private property within 660 feet of state roads must be removed within 30 days of the general election. 

Department staff safely removes unlawful signs on highway roadsides, often temporarily storing them at the nearest NDOT maintenance station for the sign owner's pick-up. Per Nevada Revised Statute 405.110, sign owners can be fined up to $250. 

A printable pamphlet containing political sign regulations is available by searching “political signs” at dot.nv.gov. 

Be aware that local cities and counties may have additional guidelines regulating the placement of political signs along local roads.
