    They just hit the Armory where I work at, made us shut down the little lighted sign out from for being too "distracting" to motorists.

    Makes you wonder how many people less powerful than NYC those scumbags in DC are pushing around, and getting away with it, eh?
    Of do you folks even care anymore?
    Study their rules and regulations carefully. Find every little nook and cranny you can and then dump on them when they try to do that.

    They say "Your sign is too bright."

    You answer "What's the allowed light level and what is ours?"

    They say "Your sign is x feet from y."

    You make them measure the distance and prove it.

    Know what the rules were when you put the sign up. Demand it be "grandfathered."

    Petty bureaucrats can be dealt with. If the minion in front of you is low enough demanding he / she call and get a supervisor on site is another must do.
    If they start making threats make sure you are writing down or recording the conversation. That will make them very nervous. If they demand you stop, ask "Why? If everything you are doing is in accordance with your regulations and legal why should it be a problem?"

    Odds on favorite they are making it up as they go and think you are just some dumb they can steamroller.

      Those are good rules to live by when dealing with damn near anyone.

      Petty tyrants exist in the private and public world, and they all seem to take pleasure in screwing you over.

      But then, the private sector jerks can't throw you in jail if they don't like you.
