In Trouble for Posting “No Trespass” Sign?

trespass beach maritime water lawIn a previous post we talked about civil trespass. One must be notified that he or she isn’t supposed to enter/remain on property before a legal trespass may occur. Posting signs is one way to accomplish this.

But what if a person posts a “no trespassing” sign on property owned by another? This scenario raises a lot of questions. And it may seem far-fetched at first glance. After all, why would somebody want to restrict access to someone else’s property?

Texas favors the free and unrestricted right of ingress and egress to and from state-owned beaches. No person may display on any public beach any sign, marker, or warning, or communicate that the public beach is private property or that the public doesn’t have the right of access to the public beach.

Still, if my beach towel is spread out, please refrain from lying on it without asking first. You’ve been notified.
