No Signs On Overpass

Town of Campbell officials near La Crosse have riled some western Wisconsin residents by banning signs hung on a pedestrian overpass over Interstate 90.
     The La Crosse Tribune reports protesters have been hanging signs and flags as part of the Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment movement. The signs encourage drivers to honk if they favor removing President Barack Obama from office.
     Campbell officials say they've been receiving calls about the noise and number of people on the bridge, especially during the evening commute.
     Town Chairman Scott Johnson describes the protests as a dangerous distraction for drivers.
     But French Island resident Tony Curtis says town officials are just using safety to squash the protest.
