(A)   The Police Chief or his designee shall have the authority to place, maintain or remove traffic control signs, signals, lane markings and other devices and shall determine the hours and days during which any traffic-control device shall be in operation or be in effect, when and as required pursuant to any official action of the City Commission, City Administration, or under the direction of the Chief of Police. The Chief of Police or his designee may place and maintain additional traffic-control devices as he deems necessary pursuant to F.S. § 316.008 (1994 Supp.) as currently enacted or as amended from time to time, to regulate, warn, or guide traffic; however, no official traffic control device shall be erected or maintained at any location so as to regulate the traffic on any state road unless approval in writing has first been obtained from the Department of Transportation.
   (B)   No provision of this traffic code for which signs or markings are required shall be enforced against an alleged violator, if at the time and place of the alleged violation an official sign or marking is not in proper position and sufficiently legible to be seen by an ordinarily observant person.
