Political Signs Can Sure Look Like Litter

AzLitter.org would like to extend a Thank You to the East Valley Tribume for awarding a BRICK to some politicians who are careless with the placement of their political signs. On 22 August 2004, EastValleyTribune.com contained the following posting.

	BRICKS to political candidates and their supporters
	who put up campaign signs in places that block clear
	views by motorists, especially near intersections and
	driveways, thus compromising public safety and forcing
	tax-paid city crews to take them down.

	Voters have every justification to evaluate candidates'
	judgment -- and fitness for office -- based on such idiocy.

Reading the East Valley Tribune's editorial reminded me of this political sign problem located on the SW corner of McClintock and Guadalupe in Tempe. Note: these political signs are not a safety hazard, but AzLitter.org questions their effectiveness.

AzLitter.org claims the political signs in the above picture look like litter. Here is another view.

Note: The SW corner of McClintock and Guadalupe is also littered with this political sign and this political sign.

AzLitter.org considers its primary mission to pick-up litter; therefore, while walking home from doing this political sign story we took care of a bus stop. {before} {after}

Also while walking home we encountered more political sign litter, which we could do nothing about except photograph.

The Five Man Electrical Band once sang "sign, sign, everwhere a sign." I don't know why this individual sign is visually spamming me so AzLitter.org filters it.
