Billboards to be banned?

March 1, 2006

Crisp County - If you've ever traveled along Interstate 75, north of Cordele, you've seen them; Billboards that advertise nude dancing, like the one that says, "We bare it all", but a bill recently passed by the Georgia House of Representatives would outlaw those billboards.

Dedria Burnam says she doesn't want her children looking at them. "If my kids are in the car, then it kind of would, if they point, like that."

The bill would also ban billboards taller than 70-feet and place restrictions on electronic signs with flashing lights. If passed, the new limits would take effect in July.
