How should Sign Sweepers remove illegal signs?
First of all, safety is key! Obey all traffic laws, do not remove signs at night and avoid removing signs on busy roads during rush hours. Do not remove illegal signs from medians on busy roads unless they are located at a stoplight with a crosswalk and you feel comfortable doing so.
Always wear a safety vest and always carry your Street Sweeper identification card. It may be helpful to also carry with you extra copies of the Temporary Signs brochure. If signs are mounted high out of your reach or in a way that you cannot physically remove it, contact the Chesapeake Customer Contact Center for removal (382-CITY).
