1. They’re ugly and quite often trees are cut to accommodate them;
2. They are incredibly dangerous unsafe traffic hazards;
3. They are the source of light pollution;
3. They are on public land yet the public gets nothing of the million of Rupees that change hands between advertiser, billboard owner and the public authority which collects advertising fees;
4. They’re meant to be in high-pedestrian areas, but our government has allowed them to be set up in high-automobile traffic areas;
5. The generators that run them are noisy and are a source of noise pollution;
6. The generators that run them spew diesel fumes onto the road and are a source of air pollution;
7. They come with their own security guards (How humiliating a job must that be);
8. The massive advertising budgets required for billboard advertsing keeps the costs of those commodities high – and the billboards are on public land!!!
9. They are evidence that city fathers are more interesting in making money than the health and safety of residents.
