In September 2011, as part of a city beautification campaign, the Department of Sanitation began a crackdown on "bandit signs," which include any placard, poster, or flyer posted on any public right-of-way.
A few months after the announcement, flyers began appearing around the city again, and so far no one has complained about being hit with a fine for a bandit sign. But the ordinance remains on the books, waiting for selective enforcement.
Each month the company spends $300 putting up bandit signs at a cost of $6 apiece for its projects along roads leading to the competitions' developments--big builders who advertise heavily and generate enviable traffic.
