Question:

If the local city ordinances or laws prohibits signs being put up in a certain area may a person (who is not the one who put up the sign) remove them?

Answer:

Although he might not be doing anything halachicly wrong but why does he have to be the one to remove them, why does it bother him?

    • Correct.
