HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. — It may sound humorous at first, but a growing problem in Hancock County is costing you money, city officials’ time, and making the roads more dangerous.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department says traffic signs are disappearing from rural parts of the county, especially southeast of Greenfield. Deputies have counted over 30 signs that have vanished so far.

The sheriff’s department says not only is the lack of traffic signs dangerous for you, but it takes time and taxpayer money to replace them. Police say most of the signs have been removed from more remote areas of the county, which could go unnoticed for a long time.
