"Hundreds of signs: C470 & I25" Sun Aug-30-09 07:58 PM by DenverShark
Hey, folks, great going!
Yesterday I was on 470 south and saw that someone had sharked foreclosure and "bank owned homes" signs at nearly all of the exits and entrance ramps.
These were blue ink on yellow coroplast, about 1'x1.5'. The signs had been cut up from other we buy houses type signs that looked a lot like the spam put up by YourCastle real estate last year and earlier this year. But after closer inspection, the back of the signs say "I Buy Cars" - so it looks like another scam by an idiot spammer. The signs won't last long.
The CDOT Region 6 Inspector had met with the YourCastle spammers (and others) earlier this summer. YourCastle appeared to have stopped spamming.
I went down Colorado Blvd. near I25 today and saw that someone had sharked a bunch of signs there, too.
Please help nip this spam in the bud. It goes up late Friday or early Sat am so they won't get caught by CDOT.
And by the way, an apartment complex is plastering all of the I25 exit and entrance ramps from County Line up to Belleview. The signs go up late Friday or early Saturday morning.
Keep an eye out, folks.
And... please tell your friends about www.CAUSS.org . The more people who understand the problem of illegal signs, the better.

Hundreds of signs sharked? I can only imagine the work that took, let alone trying to remove them. Time, physical bodily constraints, car space, and sending a clear message to the community are all good reasons to shark signs. This is a great example of why NOT to pick up the litter, and then call the regulating authorities to enforce and fine the lawbreakers.
I thought Denver was getting better, and then apparently it all comes back again. Shark, Shark, Shark!
If you pick these signs up, then there is no apparent problem. I would suggest a 30 SharkFest for Denver, and then count the carcasses remaining.
If a person has a disability and can't walk very well, at least they can call code enforcement and complain. Everyone can play a role to help clean up their community.
