A group called Scenic Colorado has organized in Denver mostly, it seems, to push for a ban on electronic billboards that the City and County of Denver is considering acting as an ordinance.
Earlier this week, I got a flyer for them, warning me that without my action, billboards everywhere could be replaced with electric ones.
My reaction? "So what?"
There is an electric billboard right outside my Cherry Creek office. It isn't any more or less noticeable than the non-electric one that was there before, except that the advertising changes more often, so it isn't as boring. Presumably, it also puts some people in business of printing overside billboard posters and the people who put them up on polls out of work. But, I really see no way to care one way or the other and simply do not see what is so noxious about this new technology.
Their FAQ is singularly unconvincing.
There may be an argument for limiting the locations where billboards can be put, but there is no legitimate reasons to prevent billboards from being electronic in places where ordinary billboards once went.
