Someone's been putting up billboards that say "stop domestic violence" and then a phone number. I'm sure glad they're there since my wife was going to hit me, and then I reminded here about that billboard, so she stopped .
I've seen them posted in other towns. They put them up in areas where there are other event related signs. I called my town's zoning enforcement officer, but he's out until Mon. The signs are still ugly even though they're not for profit.

What do you mean by "billboards?" Are they step-stake signs in the ground, or nailed to telephone poles, or what? I haven't seen any, but will keep an eye out.
And, notwithstanding the fact that I believe that any man who hits a woman should be sentenced to get his ass kicked by a hockey team, just so he can see what it's like (funny about those Canadians, they seem like pretty peaceable types until they put the skates on; then it's "Fook, Marcel, I reep you somabeech head off and merde down you neck, eh?"), I'll still rip the signs down if they go up in my town.
As I've said before, I don't care if the signs are for Mother Theresa's favorite charity, they don't stay up around my town.
Speaking of which, I gotta run out and grab a bunch that appeared today...they're relatively small yellow things on step-stakes; and appear to be for a party hosted by Radio 104.
I can't tell for sure until I grab them, because the lettering isn't big enough to read from a car. Are these people stupid or what? Go to all the trouble of trashing my town, and don't even make the damn signs legible!

I didn't take it down yet, but it has to be about 6 feet wide x 3 feet high. They plant them in an area where there are some event related signs. The event related signs seem to be getting out of control in Suffield. There are 12 signs on the green right now.
I'm not sure how much sympathy I'll get from the town since most town buildings have those lighted signs with changable lettering in front of them to display inane messages such as "School's out - Watch for Children" or "School's back - Watch for Children" They never say when the season starts for children to watch for adults.
