Remove the Trump Adopt-a-Highway Sign

Remove the Trump Adopt-a-Highway sign on the West Side Highway

Why is this important?

NYC DOT’s own policy as per its website ( is that “Highways can be adopted by individuals, companies, or organizations (but not political candidates and campaigns).” This sign should have been removed in 2015 and, according to DOT’s policy should not be in place now, as Trump has stated an intention to run again in 2024.

We won!! DOT removed the sign!!

Thanks so much to Assembly Member Linda Rosenthal for her support, to Carol Tannenhauser of the West Side Rag for all her help in spreading word about this issue and her great coverage of all things Upper West Side, to NYC DOT Manhattan Borough Commissioner Edward F. Pincar Jr. for his help on this issue (and all his work to make NYC streets safer), and especially to each and every one of you. This shows that we can make a difference in our community.

Thanks to the West Side Rag for writing about this petition. We’re halfway to the goal - if everyone who signed gets just one more person to sign, we’ll get there!
