    Some Lohr signs defy state
    requirements, common sense


    RANTS that at least one political candidate just can't seem to
    grasp the meaning of basic, straight forward state
    transportation requirements for the placement of election
    campaign signs outside restricted state right of way areas.

    For the safety of those driving on the roads, the state does
    not allow political signs, for instance, on concrete highway
    islands at intersections.

    However, common sense and state requirements don't seem
    to phase or stop Fayette County Commissioner Dave Lohr
    from anchoring his signs down, into the thin black lines of
    concrete sealant, put on the seams of connected concrete
    slabs to preserve the concrete roadway islands and lane
    dividers against weather and weeds.



    What if everyone running for office did as Lohr does, and
    what if signs for all candidates jammed the restricted
    concrete roadway islands?

    Not that Rants&Raves is suggesting that other candidates
    cram dozens of their sign posts down into that thin line of
    black concrete sealant on an island next to Lohr's signs.




    We're suggesting it's only right if Lohr removes his signs from
    the middle of concrete road lane dividers or intersection
    islands.

    State taxpayers should not have to pay transportation
    workers to go fetch Lohr's improperly placed signs, shoved
    an inch or so in black concrete seam sealant on restricted
    traffic lane dividers and concrete roadway islands.

    RAVES of hope that on an extremely windy day -- such as
    today -- that Lohr's improperly placed signs don't detach from
    the shallow spikes into the traffic island concrete sealant
    seams and fly right into someone's windshield, going down
    the road at the posted speed limit of 50 on Route 119. (15

    Lohr replacement sign even closer to traffic
    RANTS that a replacement political sign for an incumbent county commissioner is even closer to traffic, at the busy intersection of Routes 119 and
    982, in Bullskin Township, than was the politician's earlier placed sign, taken away by wind.

    RANTS because even the all important and necessary "Hospital" sign had to be farther back from the intersection, a few feet behind the rear
    bumper of the auto of the person taking the photo below on the left. (13 May 19)
