HONOLULU — The installation of signs, including candidate signs, visible from state highways is illegal, according to the state Department of Transportation.
The DOT in a release stated that campaign signs do not fall under the exempted categories defined in Hawaiʻi Revised Statutes Chapter 264, Part V, and are unlawful.
This includes, but is not limited to, posting of political campaign signs on overpasses, fencing, sign posts and poles.
It is also illegal to sign wave on overpasses above state freeways or highways.
To report an illegally placed sign, contact the Highways Maintenance Hotline at 808-241-3000 and follow the voice prompts.
Campaign supporters are also encouraged to be mindful of safety as they sign wave in areas off busy highways. Use caution when exiting and reentering traffic, and do not park in areas where it is prohibited.
