Thanks to a partnership between Verizon, PECO and the City of Philadelphia, bandit sign owners will soon be facing fines. Bandit signs are all those nuisance signs attached to poles (example : WE BUY JUNK CARS TOP $$$ PAID CALL 215-555-5555).
In Philadelphia, a warning is going out as an effort to remove the signs or fine those who are using the illicit advertising. Violators will receive a $75 citation for every sign.
If you spot one of these eye sores in your neighborhood, the city is you to take a picture of them and report them via e-mail to email@example.com.
