They don’t mean the portable signs that are placed on highways at various points by the State - but the digital signs that appear on poles, etc., in communities show- ing the speed at which ve- hicles are traveling as they pass by. They wondered i a city could purchase these signs and install them on highways going through their communities. They eel that drivers do pay attention to these signs. Answer: According to Minnesota State Statute (M.S.S.) 169.06 Sub.3, “Local authorities in their respective jurisdic- tions shall place and maintain such trafc-control devices upon highways under their jurisdiction as they may deem necessary to indicate and to carry out the provisions o this chapter or local trafc ordinances, or to regulate, warn, or guide trafc. All such trafc-control devices here- ater erected shall conorm to the state manual and speci- cations.” I this is within a right o way o a State or U.S. Trunk Highway, you will need to contact the Minnesota Depart- ment o Transportation (MnDOT). There will most likely be a permit process you will need to go through. MnDOT would be better able to explain, but I believe some things taken into consideration would be the trafc and other unctional areas i a device may be installed and what possible restrictions would apply. Other issues would be acceptable locations, does the device meet saety require- ments (crash tested, brightness, etc.) and who will main- tain the device, just to name a ew. I you have any questions concerning trafc related laws or issues in Minnesota, send your questions to Trp.
