3006 Sign question.

Postby Bugler » Fri Jan 04, 2013 4:15 am

Are white letters on clear glass considered "contrasting" for this sign?

I think the easy answer is could you read them?
If you could read them, then they are valid (assuming they fit all other aspects of the 30.06 posting rules)
Webster, TX ----------Smith & Wesson M&P 9, .40 or .45 with various Crossbree or White Hat holsters

That has been the debate for a long time.

They shouldn't be, but they are.

Kinda depends on the backdrop. Black wall? Or white wall? As Teamless said, if you have read it and seen it and the letter size and wording are right, then I would say you have been notified.

The real question is are you willing to take a ride downtown in a police car or are you just not going to go to those places? Some places like hospitals in my area cannot be avoided when needed. I find I can avoid most others.

I visited a friend at MCA in Arlington a couple of weeks ago. While walking in, I was looking for a 30.06 but did not see one, so I carried on in. On my way out, I saw the back of the white letters of a 30.06 on a glass door at the entrance. As you come in, the wall behind that glass is white, so I never saw the letters. As you leave, the background is darker (outside, trees, cars, etc.). I still just caught a glimpse, but it was enough to recognize what it said.

Not sure what would have happened had I been stopped while in the hospital.

There have been many discussions about this topic. Since the purpose of contrasting colors is to make the sign readily readable, I vote "Yes".

IMO, trying to convince a jury or judge that they aren't would be a hard sell. If I were the defense attorney I would call in expert witnesses - such as a physicist, printer, graphic designer, typographer, artist and maybe a psychic. :rules:
