Many city planners adopt sign codes that are either written by other cities (and therefore don’t have any real bearing on their own city) or use very stringent rules simply because they thing signs are either an “eye sore” or will cause accidents and injury because they distract people. Quick the opposite is the cases with good signage. We must make that caveat because not all signs are created equal. I’m talking about a well designed and well built sign that is pleasing to the eye and visually stunning.
Many city planners, city halls, city managers don’t realize that their sign codes are doing more HARM than good for their towns. Signs do NOT cause accidents or driver distractions. In fact, many of the signs that sign codes will allow – small or hidden signs – are the culprits for the accidents.
