Bandit Signs In Dallas Area

4 Replies

Does anyone know if there are any areas in the DFW area where bandit signs are legal? I'm really interested in Rockwall, Wylie, Richardson, Garland etc. Anyone know?

You should be able to go to those city's websites and they might have a whole page dedicated to legal/illegal signage. At least Arlington does...that's where I am. And it's illegal for the most part.

I bet every city now has an ordinance against them  There are some fringe areas where I notice they go up and stay up for weeks.  Areas such as Rockwall and Wylie may be OK.  But Jared's right, in our city they last for about 1 to 2 days.   i suspect Garland and Richardson are as vigilant as Arlington.  I personally do not use bandit signs and I don't like to see them in my neighborhood....

@Dev Horn  is corret about Richardson.  Just don't do it.  They might last the weekend, if you put them up on Friday, ater 5, but you risk irritating everyone in the neighborhood.

Richardson specifically has very stringent signage regulations on all kinds of signs.  And, their ordinances specifically ban bandit signs.

I've spent some time looking through some city ordinances, but haven't found anything. Are there any keywords to help me find the rules?  My biggest concern is, what are the consequences? I might be willing to pay a fine or two, but don't want to risk jail time over it.
