Turn Off Digital Billboards!

If you haven’t already, be sure to read the Steve Lopez column in today’s L.A. Times, L.A. Under Visual Assault by Digital Billboards.  Then tell your elected representatives that the light pollution, energy consumption, and potential traffic hazards posed by these billboards are unacceptable!  For a City Council directory, and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s office, see below.  Let these officials know how you have been personally affected by one or more of these billboards.  Does light come in your windows at night?  Have you or other drivers you’ve seen been distracted?  Do you think that the equivalent of a huge TV screen on a city street degrades the quality of life in your neighborhood?  Are you concerned about energy consumption and global warming?  Use “Turn Off Digital Billboards!” or something equally dramatic as your subject line, and let these officials know that you will not stand for turning over the city’s visual environment to commercial advertisers!
