Unauthorized Use or Occupation

The Ministry of Transportation views billboards as a distraction to through traffic, and will not approve of their presence near the right-of-way. Billboards must be placed a minimum of 300 m away from a provincial highway.

If a billboard is causing a distraction to motorists, the Ministry official has authority to ensure removal of the billboard as per Section 16 of the Transportation Act.
