TULSA, OK -- The City of Tulsa is on a crusade against roadside signs.

Crews unloaded truckloads of signs they pulled up Friday for political candidates, open houses and even business signs.

Mayor Kathy Taylor says she's hired more sign inspectors to enforce the rules, like no signs on abandoned property or in the right-of-way.

"It is a big problem and it just detracts from the beauty of our city and it also ends up as litter that we then have to pick up or see on the side of the roads," said Mayor Kathy Taylor.

The push to stamp out illegal signs is a partnership between the city and the Tulsa Beautification Foundation.
