Campaign signs are an eye soar.

November 30, 2000

Its been more than a month since the election, but campaign signs still litter Missouri's highways.

Ben Davis has the story from Jeffeson City.

Unlike Florida, Missouri's votes have been counted and certified...so why are those signs still up?

MoDOT's Jim Coleman says his department removes political signs on public property a week after the election.

But he says, those signs still up are not a MoDot resposibility.

Actuality:cole1
RunTime: 15 sec
OutCue: and things like that
Contents: We are in charge of removing signs from public roads but private property is not our responsibility.

Coleman says some cities have laws to remove those old campaign signs, while others will just have to wait for mother nature to take its course.
