Yesterday I posted a list of the 10 worst intersections in unincorporated Pierce County for illegal signs. The list was based on an analysis of a database of nearly 8,800 signs collected by the county public works department during a 2007-08 crackdown on signs in public rights of way.
Now here’s a link to a Google map where you can get information about the number of illegal signs collected at 50 Pierce County intersections.
The same caveats apply to these numbers as to the top-10 list. It’s based on incomplete data (county workers collected more than 16,000 signs during the crackdown, but entered only about 8,800 in the database). As a result, the number of signs at each intersection is probably underreported. But based on the available data, these appear to be the 50 worst intersections in the county.
Coming Saturday: a look at some of the most common illegal signs.
Coming Sunday: an article that looks at the results of the crackdown and the status of enforcement of the sign code (hint: there hasn’t been much enforcement for months).
