Safety fears over A3 electronic billboards - your views?

The new electronic billboard above the A3 underpass on Malden Way, has sparked a large number of complaints - with people alarmed about the distraction to drivers. These hoardings suddenly appeared two months ago.

One driving instructor told the Lib Dem Focus Team it was particularly a problem for learner drivers.

"I’m also worried that the pedestrian crossings are being obscured too,” said Trevor Heap.

“We have let the police know our concerns, but wanted to gauge opinion more widely,” added Simon James. “The copper effect surround reflects the sun and drivers at the roundabout sometimes can’t see pedestrians and cyclists approaching the crossings.”


What do you think? Should the electronic billboard be removed? Or just toned down? Share your thoughts in the comments box below.
