Janesville police issue yard sign warning
Yard signs could be a safety problem in Janesville. Police are urging residents to keep yard and political signs on private property and avoid obstructing the vision of motorists.
Sergeant Brian Donohoue says signs placed in the terrace, or on utility poles, or street signs, or any public right of way, can be a real hazard. Concerns are heightened this time of year because of the start of school, and the presence of children.
Donohoue adds residents might like officers to perform other duties, rather than pick up illegal yard signs.
