Pa Passes 'Purple Paint' Law. Replaces No Trespassing Signs


Gov. Tom Wolf has signed into law a bill that allows property owners to mark their property boundaries with purple paint stripes instead of posting "No Trespassing" signs.

The bill signed Wednesday by Gov. Tom Wolf is designed to ease a landowners' task of posting "no trespassing" signs that deteriorate over time. The law takes effect in 60 days. The purple stripes must be vertical lines at least 8 inches long and 1 inch wide. They must be 3 to 5 feet off the ground, readily visible to a person approaching the property and no more than 100 feet apart. 

 The law applies everywhere, except in Philadelphia and Allegheny County. 
 Numerous other states have adopted a purple-paint law.
