Posting Signs at Night

For those of you who might be a little shy, nightposting is a great way to get a message out discreetly. Watch for overpasses with illuminated signs and take note of those places where the surrounding fencing is also lit. Signs placed in those spots are easily readable and have a very spooky, otherworldly look to them. Bold, simple messages work best and the cardboard has to be white.

Cable ties make attachment very secure.


Tyvek is weatherproof. Acrylic paint will not run. Reinforce the corners, then pierce the corners to accept a cable tie or string. Make sure the string is secure so it doesn't fall out while affixing the poster.

I'm such a coward. Can I really post on fences along the interstate legally? I'm not afraid of people seeing me as much as I am of a cop stopping.

Dear Southern Kentucky, if a cop catches you, he might hassle you but that'll be the extent of it. Just do what they say with a smile and all they can pin on you is attempting to express yourself politically in the Land of the Free.

Best is just to be quick and discreet. I've done it over 3,000 times now and been caught exactly six times. Each time I was cool with the cops and they were cool with me.

Plenty of countries, by the way, where the punishment for dissent is death. And still people speak out. Can't help thinking we owe it to them to use our free speech here where (and while) we can.
