It began almost 30 years ago and at least 11 states are involved. It was supposed to be more economical and practical for landowners and it must be “readily visible to any person approaching”. Jonathan Kennedy, a landowner and broker says,
“The reason the Texas legislature did that is they were trying to keep landowners from constantly having to replace signs. In Texas as we know, people like to take target practice at signs so they are having to replace them frequently.”
The “Purple Paint Law” allows landowners to use the color purple to mark the boundaries of their land and is equal to a “no trespassing” sign. Purple is the color that’s usually used although some states allow other colors.
Besides Texas, the other states who have this law are:
- North Carolina
I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this, has anyone else ever seen this?
