Checkpoints throughout town will also be used to enforce all other motor vehicle laws, including driving under the influence, said Lt. Thomas P. Casimiro II, public safety officer.

“It will be the mission of the Westport Police Department to make this holiday season safer through this heightened enforcement effort, and we urge all motorists to always use good highway safety sense,” he said.

Town to Remove Illegal Commercial Signage

Westport Planning & Zoning Director Larry Bradley today announced that effective immediately the Planning & Zoning Department will begin removing illegal commercial signage from town roads. 

“The Planning and Zoning Department is now taking a proactive role in ensuring that the town’s roads are not littered with excess commercial signage,” said Bradley. “Many complaints received concern excessive and/or illegal commercial signage, and business owners should be aware of the new policies that will be used for enforcement.”

Illegal signs removed from roadways will be taken to the town’s transfer station on the Sherwood Island Connector. P&Z staff members will notify the owner of the signs that he/she has 30 days to retrieve them. If not collected, they will be destroyed. 

Bradley reminded residents that commercial signage regulations prohibit off site advertising signs and only allow temporary signs for public/charitable events and political purposes.
