Reducing clutter on 100-series highways

HALIFAX, N.S. — With the Nova Scotia’s new signage law taking effect this week, signs promoting tourist attractions on major highways will be shrinking.

The province’s new law is aimed at reducing clutter and driver distraction by eliminating billboards on controlled access highways.

Although the list of businesses qualifying for space on the new sign is a short one, truckers should still be able to locate the on-road service they need. That’s because those who sell fuel, food and accommodations can get listings under the new scheme.
