The SD&G OPP would like to remind all users of the Township and County road’s that damaging or removing “ROAD SIGNS” are criminal offences.
Damaging a sign could result in a charge of mischief, removing one could result in a charge of theft.
Having a (stolen) sign in your possession could result in a charge of possession of stolen property.
More importantly, removing a sign could lead to disastrous consequences. The signs are placed there for the safety of all who use the roads. Removing any sign could lead to an unwanted collision and serious injuries.
SD&G OPP is asking that if anyone observes someone removing or damaging any “ROAD SIGNS” to call their local OPP detachment or Crime Stoppers and report the incident.
