Summit County prohibits placing political signs in any public right of way
Campaign signs must comply with the following guidelines:
Campaign signs shall not exceed three square feet (3 sq. ft.) of area and four feet (4’) in height, measured from the top of the sign to the grade directly below the sign. Campaign signs are permitted in any zone district, provided they are located a minimum of ten feet (10’) from the edge of the curb or edge of the pavement, where there is no curb on the street which the sign fronts. If the ten foot (10’) distance would be within a structure, the sign may be within three feet (3’) of the front of the structure. Illumination of campaign signs prohibited. These signs shall only be permitted on private property with the permission of the property owner and are not permitted in the public right-of-way. County personnel may remove and impound these signs if notice to remove the signs has been sent to the property owner or candidate and they have failed to comply with that notice.
There are many cities/towns and Utah State road right of ways that impose restrictions within their jurisdiction.
