The above sign has been over the Santa Monica Freeway since July 21st.

Ever wonder who puts up those signs along freeways advocating for some cause or the other? One person is the Freeway Blogger who has hung over 4,000 signs against the war on freeways across the California and the western U.S. The above photo is from late July, but at least five went up yesterday afternoon, according to the blogger in an e-mail.

How much time does it take to put one of these up? Not long. The sign in the above photo "took less than ten minutes to make and five minutes to post with a material cost of about a nickel." There is even an instruction manual on how to do it.
