Prince Edward Island RCMP used their Twitter account this morning to remind the public that altering street signs is against the law.

RCMP Const. Jamie Parsons tweeted a photo of a shopping cart flung onto a stop sign in Stratford with the reminder, "Altering/Defacing road signs is NO Joke, in some cases could be dangerous for motorists and pedestrians."

Indeed, the Prince Edward Island Highway Traffic Act states, "no person shall alter, injure, deface, obliterate, remove or in any manner interfere with any traffic sign or any notice or obstruction lawfully placed on any highway under this act."
