KSP would like to remind everyone that altering a traffic control device or barrier is punishable per state statute.

According to KRS, “a person shall not attempt to or in fact alter, twist, deface, injure, knock down, or interfere with the effective operation of any official traffic control device or signal, or any part thereof.”
