INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — A new so-called "Purple Paint" law goes into effect in Indiana this Sunday. Instead of marking your private property with a "no trespassing "sign, you will be able to mark it with a line of purple paint on a tree or a post.
Supporters of the law say using the line of purple paint is a more efficient way of marking private property. It can't be torn down and according to the author of the law, more people will see it.
"Instead of going down and buying those signs and having to replace them every year. The weather ripping them off of trees, it'll allow them to get a can of purple spray paint and mark those trees." said Lloyd Arnold Director DNR Law Enforcement Division.
State Representative Dave Wolkins says the lines can be painted on a tree or a post, but they must be at least three to five feet high and eight inches long. No trespassing signs will still be valid under this new law but Wolkins wants everyone to be on the lookout for the purple paint.
