Theft of Street Signs Can Endanger Lives!



At first glance, the theft of a street sign for a dorm room or switching them around as a prank might not seem like a big deal. But there can be major consequences.  Not only can a missing street sign be confusing for drivers and pedestrians, it can cause an accident or even worse – it can cost someone their life.

Our emergency responders rely on street signage in order to respond to a call as quickly as possible. When signs go missing, it can make it difficult for the fire department or ambulance service to find a street, especially at night. Those critical seconds or even minutes could worsen an already serious situation.

So before you decide to steal or swap out a street sign, please think of the life you may be endangering.

Residents are asked to please call the Town Office if you notice a missing street sign so we can replace it.
