Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Texas outdoor advertiser bond, the principal (advertiser) agrees to abide by all provisions of the V.T.C.A., Transportation Code, Chapter 391. Specifically, this bond protects the state from financial loss up to the full bond amount if the principal erects or maintains any unlawful sign or signs.

What’s the fine print?

Outdoor advertiser bonds in Texas remain in full force and effect and run concurrently with the license period and for any and all renewal periods unless canceled by the surety. The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice via certified mail to the principal and to the Texas Transportation Commission. Cancellation becomes effective 30 days after the commission receives the notice.
