Fighting street spam!

Our Mission!

We are dedicated to putting an end to street spam in Baltimore County - trash that is intentionally placed in the right-of-way of many of our roads to advertise some product of service, often called "litter-on-a-stick", and often being a scam. Our communities are being littered with signage and trash that detract from the neighborhoods that we have worked so hard to beautify. With the State of Maryland having designated many of our roadways as "Scenic Byways" the signage and trash must not be allowed to continue. As responsible citizens, many of us go out of our way to remove the signs and trash from our roads. When necessary, we need to pursue code enforcement action and legal remedies to remove and prevent further ruin to our communities and neighborhoods. It is essential that citizens rise to the task of keeping our communities and neighborhoods beautiful for our families. Please join and help us preserve what is best in Baltimore County.

While this site is mostly about "snipe" or "bandit" signs - the ones stuck in the road rights-of-way, it also addresses some other forms of illegal roadside sign clutter.

Disclaimers, etc.

I put this web site together to provide various information for residents of Baltimore County who are fighting illegal roadside signs. I am solely responsible for its contents and it does not represent the opinions of any other person or organization.

 

This web site is designed to be used by someone at a computer, not on a cellphone or ipad while driving. On this web site, links to external web sites open in a new window or tab (depending on your browser settings), which should be closed in order to return to this site. While remaining in this site, you will always be able to use the "Back" button on your browser, unlike many web sites which "trap" you on a page or require reload of the previous page to backup, thus wasting time and bandwidth.

A Google search (done either with the box at the top of this page or at Google.com) will not link to detailed information on pages linked to by either the "Donation collection bins" page or the "Perennial violators" page. This is intentional.
