The Indiana Department of Transportation is warning political candidates to keep their campaign signs out of the rights of way of state and federal highways.

INDOT says in a news release that state law gives highway workers the power to remove unauthorized signs from interstates and interchanges, state and federal highway intersections, and rights of way that parallel state or federal highways.

The agency says the state right of way extends to the back of the ditch, fence line or utility poles.

Candidates whose signs are removed can reclaim them at the nearest INDOT subdistrict office. Those offices are in Albany, Cambridge City, Greenfield, Tipton, and Indianapolis.
