HB 39 (BR 216) - F. Nesler

     AN ACT relating to highway signs.
     Create a new section of KRS Chapter 177, relating to state and federal highways, to permit any local government to erect motorcycle awareness signs in the right-of-way of any highway that is part of the state primary road system established under KRS 177.020; require a local government wanting to erect the signs to give written notice to the Transportation Cabinet identifying the routes and specific locations on the routes where motorcycle awareness signs will be erected; permit the cabinet to suggest alternative locations if the original location poses a traffic hazard; establish the color, design, and language to be used on motorcycle awareness signs; require signs to meet the standards for retroreflectivity and illumination established in the federal Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.


     HFA (1, F. Nesler) - Require that a local government "request" rather than "notify" the cabinet of sign placement; give cabinet right to refuse placement and identify alternative locations; eliminate references to a specific sign color.
