Anti-War Banners Over Highway 17

In a two-pronged attack, anti-war demonstrators hung banners from both Mt. Hermon Rd and Scotts Valley Drive overpasses in the town of Scotts Valley for northbound 17 commuters in the early morning of Tuesday Dec 4th around 7:30a. The combined message was "Are you buying this war?" and then a mile later.. "At what cost?", with a face or skull with its mouth taped shut, and an American flag hung right next to it. At 8am, one CalTrans truck was seen parked near the 1st sign. By 9p later that night, the two signs asking questions had been removed by someone, while the American flag was left in place. Who removed the question banners, on what grounds, and why they left the 3rd banner (the American flag) could not be determined. Did CalTrans do it, and if so why are they enforcing whatever law only against the politically INcorrect banners when their job is supposed to be road and highway maintenance, not political censorship?
