Councilman promises better quality of life

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — City officials aren’t wasting any time enforcing a new law that targets mobile billboards.

In West Hills, a tow truck hauled away a detached trailer that had a gold jewelry advertising sign on it — the ninth advertising trailer impounded since the state law took effect on Jan. 1.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports Councilman Dennis Zine says it will improve both safety and the quality of life.

Critics say the crackdown potentially infringes on free speech, but motorists are allowed to tow a sign around all day — it’s unhitching and parking the sign that is now illegal.

    They can’t figure out a way to tax the mobile signs , and that really upsets the city!

    I really wish Las Vegas would adopt this law! You can not see anything either side anymore when driving down the Vegas ‘Strip with all those damn mobile billboard trucks they have there. What a waste of fuel and emissions!

    It’s the moving ones that bug me. Your attention goes straight to it! It’s like being in Blade Runner!

    Yep sure,

    we are all need an accident safe society,

    in order to make them effectively we should agree with the safest techniques whatever it is.

    I accept and highly recommend to have this law passed immediately…
