   Sign setup instructions & photos


Alternative front signs:

Materials needed:

  • Signs printed
  • Ribbon, string, or shoelaces
  • Metal washers
  • Hole punch
    • Obtainable at office supply store:
      • Plastic page shields

The kit contains

  • Bumper stickers
  • Chapstick
  • Clips to secure signs at your side
  • Signs
  • Sunblock

Once you've got it set up, you can keep your kit in your car. Then, when the time is right and you're in the right place, you can park by the right intersection and spend as little or as much time as you want there -- 5 minutes or five hours.

Your signs will be in plastic page shields, so there'll always look great. When you try this out for your first half an hour to see if you want to commit to it, if you're like most people you will probably just pin your signs, with no plastic shields, to your clothing. And this will work. When you're doing it on a regular basis, you'll want to set your signs up so that they're always ready to go, and no pinning is necessary.

Reinforcing tape on the front.

You can use ribbon on the signs instead of string -- but string is OK too. String has to be thick to feel comfortable over your shoulders. I used ribbon, which is comfortable and possibly easier to obtain. Shoelaces are also good.

Weight the signs with metal washers -- add or subtract washers to calibrate the front and back so the signs balance evenly where you want them on your body.

Tape the side of the horizontal sign so the washers won't roll out.

Beware of gusty tropical breezes!  They can blow your signs up, and cause the lead washers to whack you on the nose. Use "Ironing Board Cover Fasteners," or some such gizmos, to further secure the signs on windy days.

Wear solid colored clothing because then your signs will show up better, and be more readable.

Back signs should probably be black for long-distance viewing. But the front, which people read up close, can be softened to blue, or some other color, if you wish.
body signs

Staked signs are illegal, but generally tolerated as long as you remove them when you go. Remove your staked signs when you go home, or the highway department will, and you'll lose your signs. One or two staked signs are sufficient, and none is OK -- it's the signs on your body that matter. If you can stake signs in on the median you work, make them far enough back so that everyone sees them -- all the cars that you're going to ask for donations pass them.

Never ask for a donation on staked signs -- only on the sign on your chest.

It helps to wear a shirt, or some other upper body garment that says CureDrive  -- it makes you official!
