Directs the Department of Transportation (the Department) to issue permits authorizing a landowner to place signs advertising the sale of his real property on a highway right-of-way adjoining such real property, provided that (i) the proposed sign placement will not impair the full use and safety of the highway or otherwise interfere with the free flow of traffic thereon and (ii) the land on which the sign is to be placed cannot be reasonably foreseen as needed for highway or other transit uses and purposes. The bill authorizes the Department to revoke such permit at the discretion of the Commissioner of Highways.
