Skip to comments.Video: City of Dallas Bans Signs for Small Business
Posted on 08/05/2010 11:30:47 AM PDT by MichCapCon
Under a Dallas law enacted in 2008, businesses are prohibited from putting signs in the upper two-thirds of any window or glass door, and no more than 15 percent of any window or glass door may be covered by signs.
The only way to comply with the new ordinance is by putting tiny signs at peoples feet, which is not an effective way to advertise. The law also bans signs that cover more than 25 percent of a buildings facade. Failure to take down the signs means you are at risk to be hit with a fine up to $2,000.

And it's not like our lives are getting better because of the relentless assault on our lives and our ability to earn a living. A huge percentage of the laws passed all up and down the power pecking order do nothing to solve the problem that gave rise to them, and in fact frequently just serve to make matters worse.
I have long contended there should be one more law, a law that says in order to pass a new law one has to be repealed. In fact, I would go with a loading dose for the first 10 years and make it a 10 to 1 ratio. Then gradually work it down to 1 to 1.
We have simply GOT to get some relief from the ability of our elected ‘leaders’ to take confiscate the fruits of our labor and impose a never-ending series of rules and regulations!
Freedom box is getting smaller and smaller. When the cover to your box gets put in place, the war will start.
The next Declaration will be by force of arms; not paper.
Wonder if that ordinance would work in Las Vegas?
Liberals really hate business - except to take its money.
Check out the Twelve Visions Party. It is about empowering the people to unprecedented wealth and freedom and teaching everyone to add value to life.
In a sane world, this would be good satire.
You know it’s bad when the reality is worse than the satire.
We have the same law in Sarasota County, FL. Retail shops are being boarded up because no one knows they exist. County officials are zealous in enforcing these unfriendly laws.
