It doesn’t look like private property to me. Looks like the side of a public road under construction.
So, to be the devil’s advocate here...you have a narrowed lane due to construction, at night, people whizzing by at 40-70 mph, turning their head to gawk at this.
This is a safety issue. I can easily see the police getting involved without the company.
What if the person had the thing holding a big sign saying ‘OBAMA’S STIMULATION MONEY ROCKS!’ Would that have been okay?
lol, no had it held up that sign I would not have been very forgiving.
If you read the article further down it says the owners of the cones is a private construction company hired to do the road repairs and not the state, and they want the charges dropped also.
In fact the owners liked what he did so well they may even offer to pay him to build more of them.
Personally I would have let him go with a warning and not pushed the bad PR a prosecution would generate, but that’s just me.
