Billboards are distracting

As regards to the unsightly billboards that line Railroad Avenue/Soledad Canyon Road, they are the single most annoying blight while driving down those avenues.

They are distracting and dangerous. One needs to pay more attention to driving then to have to watch a continuous commercial as you are going down the road.

And I will also add this need to spend taxpayer dollars on art work and sculptures on our roads and the upcoming roundabout are a huge waste of our money.

We need to do whatever it takes to keep our roads safe and not have to read in The Signal every morning that there has been another automobile accident in our town.

Thank you.

I guess she hasn't seen the proposal to put in GIANT Vegas-strip-style digital billboards. If she things the regular ones are unsightly...stand by. Those digital things are hideous, absolutely an eyesore and I suspect a big driving distraction too.

I'd like to see them remove 60 billboards. The freeways are ugly anyway...stick the signs there.

Brit, do you even understand what they want to do? So you're opposed to regular billboards, but not opposed to HUGE digital billboards?

After reading the title, I thought this was going to be a LTE from Lois.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Karen, please provide us with proof where someone reading a billboard led to a car collision.

I won't hold my breath.
