Check this guy out! One man doggedly sets out to educate the pre-occupied 99%. This kind of inspired creativity, not to mention what he must go through to put up each sign, leaves me in awe. Thank you thank you thank you!
Tales of the Freeway Blogger: Because when you put up a sign next to a freeway, people will read it until somebody takes it down.”
He’s “painted and posted thousands of political signs on the freeways of California and the western United States.”
San Francisco (Three days @ 90,000+ viewers per day)
Berkeley (Five days @ 110,000+ viewers per day)
Los Angeles (duration unknown)
These signs are made quickly, easily and cheaply using scrap cardboard, paint and an overhead projector. I place them by driving around and determining which spots are easiest to see and most difficult to get to from the road. I can attach them to fencing within seconds using bungee cords and duct tape. By attaching them to the inside of the fencing there is no danger whatsoever of their falling into traffic.
These two signs (above and below) were placed in not-very-well-sealed overpasses over the Santa Monica and San Diego Freeways. Each has stayed up for over a month, passed by over 110,000 and 120,000 drivers per day respectively.
Novato and Larkspur, California (Three and five days+ at 80,000 drivers per day.)
