Study: Digital Billboards Don't Cause Accidents, People Do
18 August 2010, 11:43 am

Earlier this year, we talked about some of the controversies surrounding digital billboards. Proponents insist that they're cleaner than their analog variants, simpler to use, look better, and make outdoor advertising affordable to more companies, small and large. Haters say that they're unattractive energy hogs that distract drivers and cause...

The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

I think a**holes that text  while they drive cause more accidents than electronic advertisements. We had those billboard in ma for about 18 months now and whats great is you don't have to see the ad everytime you pass it. Also in ma all those billboards are hooked into the amber alert system as well as homeland security.

I am not sure about that but from 1959 until 2008 this ad hung over the big curve of the Palmetto Expressway in Miami.  By the way the highway is named after a :censor: roach known as the palmetto bug that is large and has wings....  A nice 2 lane highway not much different than the one around Boston.  Anyway the real ad was motorized.  The :dog: tugged on her bottom reviling some and then more... of the cheeks...



The ad was modernized and now I hear the new add shows less cheek and is less dangerous to drivers.  Funny how they say we censor less now...
