The state of Montana wants to ban electronic billboards along our roadways. Evidently the current law isn’t specific enough.
These are those fancy gadgets that change message every few seconds. The kind you see behind home plate during baseball games. State law already bans “advertising signs that flash, move or use intermittent lights along state roadways.”
Advertisers say that the current rules don’t pertain to the new technology. Let’s see, they use LED lights. The messages changes intermittently. Hmmm… yeah, I think we need to make that more clear in the law. I already have enough crap to block my views of the mountains, I don’t need a “new technology” to block out more and at the same time burn up my precious megawatts.
