Red Deer County last week issued a notice reminding residents that mobile signs along major highways in the area will soon be prohibited.

The County’s Planning and Development Services department says that, effective Oct. 5, all types of mobile signage will be disallowed along Highway 2, Highway 2A, Highway 11 and Highway 11A.

The prohibition, according to a County media release, includes “all signs on licensed or un-licensed vehicles or trailers that are located on land adjacent to the highways for the purpose of advertising.” It excludes “landowners who are advertising products or services taking place on their land,” such as advertising hay for sale.

Failure to remove such signs will see fines of $500, $1,000 and $5,000 incurred for first, second and third offences, respectively.

Those who require clarification about the rules are asked to contact the County at 403-350-2170.
