This is an interesting story about an LCO who's sign was torn down from along a highway that was on property he rented. It appears he really got a lot of calls from the sign.

Have you ever used signs along roadways?

How did they work? Did you run into trouble with local laws?

Business Owner's Billboard Removed - Up and down Highway 144 in Bryan County, you'll see billboards. Some for businesses, some for politicians. But a Riceboro business owner says his was torn down. He turned to WTOC for some answers.

A few months ago, Bryan County started enforcing its new sign ordinance. The county says the man's sign is illegal, despite a lease with the property owner. He says this sign flap is just an example of a double standard in the county.

Ray Gordon is not a happy camper. "They tore my sign down," he told us.

After 21 years in civil service, he's spent the last six running his own lawn care business.

Best Cut Lawn Care was doing well until early May. Bryan County removed his billboard on Highway 144.

"The sign is number one," Gordon told us. "Majority of my business is the sign. People drive by on the highway."

You have to be careful here too of where you can put up signs, especially along highways and freeways.

I feel bad for this guy because he was leasing property along a highway to put up his sign. It wasn't as if he just stuck it anywhere.
