Sign of the times | Letter

I find it contradictory that Washington state has distracted driving laws but allows roadside signs for political candidates. Are we supposed to take our eyes off the road and study those signs? Personally, I choose my candidates by their write-ups in the newsletter and not by the signs. When we first moved here more than a decade ago, I was happy that there were minimal billboards to ruin the aesthetic of the landscape. Do I need to start some type of petition to get the signs stopped?
