How do you feel about digital billboards?

A three-judge panel Monday ordered the removal of 100 digital billboards installed across Los Angeles under a 2006 legal settlement — the latest turn in a decade-long saga surrounding outdoor signs.

The panel convened by the state's 2nd District Court of Appeal said the City Council never should have allowed advertising companies CBS Outdoor and Clear Channel Outdoor to convert dozens of billboards to electronic formats when existing laws prohibited such changes. "We do not see how the language could be plainer," the ruling states.

    Last thing I want on my daily drive is having flashy bright distracting ADvertising pushed in my face! It makes me angry half the time.

    They are a nuisance, especially the ones near the roads. Drivers are supposed to watch the road and the other cars, without being distracted by big flashy billboards.

    I think they are dangerous because drivers tend to keep watching them to see what the next sign is going to be.

    One more distraction for drivers. Do they expect you to hit reverse if you missed the new ad for McDonalds' new sandwich?

    I hate billboards. Period. They make our landscape ugly, they make our cities ugly, they are advertising like we really need more of it, right??

    A digital billboard is not something to hate. Murder is something to hate.

    Actually "None of the Above",.. Don't really care about the billboards one way or the other.

    @&$P$# SodaHead, I miss clicked and you can't fix it.

    No matter, I really neither hate or love them. They are kind of cool and more interesting than old style billboards, but like anything they can be overdone, and some of them are certainly too bright.

    they are SO distracting to the driver! those billboards have probably already been responsible for accidents
  • Kaimeso twizzle... 2012/12/17 01:34:23
    I don't know, I doubt most drivers ever see them since they are busy texting or yapping on their cell phones,...
  • twizzle... Kaimeso 2012/12/19 02:49:17
    very true! :D

    They don't require any paper, so that's good. But they do take up energy, so that's bad. And billboards in general are freakin annoying... So "hate them"

    Just adds to the already mind-numbing environmental advertising squallor..

    Can't stand the things, and at night, WAY too bright. Quite blinding actually.
