I don't know if it is due to the slack economy, but bandit signs are popping up all over Massachusetts these days. I'm referring to the commercial signs that hype scams like "lose 40 lbs." or "work from home" or "cash for houses." Placing these at street intersections or on utility poles is illegal and subject to fines of up to $500. The law also states that these signs can be removed or destroyed by anyone. If anyone else spots these signs, please take a minute to pull them down and dispose of them. There is also a grass roots Web site ( devoted to fighting these annoying and intrusive signs.
